Lot Essay

Prints from the collection of John Barnard always had a particular allure to the collector. As Frits Lugt remarked: 'La marque de John Barnard est de toutes les marques anglaises, la plus révérée. C'est que le goût parfait de ce collectionneur ne fut presque jamais en défaut, et que par suite son paraphe est une excellente garantie d'authenticité.'
