Would like to know something about a favorite copy of one of his art (2 children saluting the flag with words underneath, "This Is Our America")
I too have bronze of Buddy the original seeing Eye dog. Were many of these produced?
McClelland Barclay Painting
I have an original oil painting by MB, three women, possibly of three stages of a womans life - I was told it's called "A quiet Moment" - is there a catalog of MB's original oil paintings?

I have an oil on canvas portrait of the artists wife given to me by her about 40 years ago. She told me that it was a picture of her, which it certainly was, that was the march 1937 cover for Redbook magazine. Is there any way I could verify this. I would like to know its value.

Barclay oil (24inby 36in)
I discovered this painting in an antique store and fell in love with it. It portrays a young boy having his hair cut with a huge set of shears. The barber is wearing wire rim glasses and has a beard; he is wearing a red vest with a brown coat and a charcoal grey stocking hat. The boy is wearing black nickers nad suspenders. The style appears to be 1940s European. Does anyone know anything about this painting?
McClelland Barclay painting of black woman in the bahamas
Something my grandparents always hanging in their house in Miami florida. My grandfather was also in the navy during ww2, so thats mabey why they had it.. I never asked :(
My grandparents were very wealthy, so it could be they bought it.. I really have no idea if McClelland Barclay's painting were worth alot. I do know that he supposedly died on a ship which Ive now found to be true from the internet.
Im wondering if there is a complete catalog that would possibly have this in it... Or mabey back then his private non military related stuff never was documented.
Emilio Maraffi Sterling Bowl
Hi Jack: In going through some things I have in storage, I found an approximate 5" diameter sterling dish in the shape of a flower. It's face has a green/brown patina. It's quite a heavy piece. The back is signed Emilio Maraffi with the number 2 below the signature. It's dated 1939 and is marked Cartier Sterling. Did your grandfather design for Cartier?
I believe i have a painting from McClelland Barclay of a castle named Carcassonne.la Cour de l'Eveque. Have found no information on this and would like to know if you do. Please send me any information you may have. This painting was givin' to me by Joe Puskis a famous violin maker from Germany. It is in excellant condition. Thank you
McClelland Barclay worked for many years doing illustrations for the Fisher Body Company, mostly of cars and people; have also seen cover works for Liberty magazine. Would like correspondence on Fisher body works.
I do not have specific
information on Buddy, but my grandfather
Emilio Maraffi designed
many of the motifs for and with McClelland
Barclay. I will keep my eyes out for anything as I am preparing a book about MCC and his metal pieces. May I have a photo for the book via email or post:

Many of the pieces attributed to Mcclelland Barclay were designed by my grandfather and would welcome any idea of pieces that are marked McClelland Barclay and Emilio Maraffi as he signed many. Thanks
I am a volunteer archivist for The Seeing Eye, a noted dog guide training school in Morristown, NJ. We have a sculpture by McClelland Barclay that is the bust of Buddy, the original Seeing Eye dog. I am trying to determine when it was done and who commissioned the work. I suspect the piece was done in the 1930's as that seems to be when the artist did most of his animal pieces. The Seeing Eye was founded in Nashville in 1929 and moved to New Jersey in 1931. There may be a connection between this piece and The Saturday Evening Post. It was an article in this publication that was the inspiration for the founding of The Seeing Eye in 1929. I would be grateful for any leads.
