Darby BarrettPeter Brown
Because I own a Darby Barrett landscape (see 5/25/08 post) I searched the internet to see if I could locate the artist. I found that he had a shop in Lahaska, Pennsylvania, selling art and antiques. I called the shop and learned that Darby is deceased.
Today I bought a landscape signed, "D Barrett." It's
24" wide by 36" high, done in a Monet style of pastel colors, in dabs of greens, yellows and blues. I'm unsure if my "D. Barrett" is 'Darby Barrett' or not. The work shown on AskArt by Darby Barrett certainly looks like the style of my
new oil. As more information becomes available, I hope to learn more.
