Topic: Seeking information about Victorian artist Jerry Barrett

Hello - I am seeking information about the Victorian artist Jerry Barrett (1824-1906) and noticed you have 20 of his paintings posted on this site (thank you).  Is anyone aware of archival documents about and/or by this artist - perhaps diaries, letters, or documents related to his paintings - especially paintings pertaining to the Crimean War, such as Florence Nightingale and also the painting of Queen Victoria visiting wounded soldiers?  Thank you.

Re: Seeking information about Victorian artist Jerry Barrett

Hello mzeni,
     He's going to be a bit of a challenge to research. I think with artists like this your best bet is to find which museums hold his works, then contact them to see what they know. I'd try going through the BBC "Your Paintings" list and then contacting the museums in question.

The list for Barrett is here.

Good luck!
