Biography William Gerard 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.
