Biography   William Barry


William Gerard Barry (1864-1941)

The early life of Cork painter William Gerard Barry was relatively normal.  Born in Ballyadam, Carrigtwohill, County Cork, he was the second of seven children of a local magistrate.  Demonstrating a natural talent for drawing, he studied at the Cork School of art under the renowned Henry Jones Thaddeus (1859-1929), who encouraged Barry to further his studies in Paris. Thus at 22, like other Irish artists such as Sarah Purser (1848-1943), Richard Moynan (1856-1906), John Lavery (1856-1941), Dermod O'Brien (1865-1945) and Paul Henry (1876-1958), Barry enrolled for one year at the Académie Julian, living a typical bohemian life in the artistic quarter of Montmartre.
