Barthe BustDebra K. Doody
I recently owned a small Barthe, it was purchased in Michigan in 2001 and I sold it on ebay, not knowing who the artist was, it is a beautiful sculpture of the Rev. J.C. Austin, at purchase it had a chip on the back and small flecks of the matte type paint missing. I am thrilled to have been a one time owner and would love to track the future of this piece. This is the first information I have been able to find on the artist. Debbie
Richmond BartheCeleste Banks
I have been compiling information on the life of James Richmond Barthe and his wonderful works of art for my daughter, his great niece,Roxanne. Uncle Richmond was one of the sweetest, kindest, honest God loving spirits I have had the pleasure of knowing in my life. His works are a reflection of the spirit that lives because he lived.
