Hide Profile

American sculptor, 1863-1938, also art collector and dealer. Trained at Chicago Art Institute and L'Ecole des Beaux-Arts. Commissioned to do statues for the Capital in Harrisburg, Pa., a statue of Lincoln for Cincinnati, Ohio. He spent the last years of his life on a monument to peace entitled "Rainbow Arch" which was never realized. Barnard supported himself by selling Medieval art and artifacts. He built the "Cloisters" in New York City to house his personal collection and sold it in 1925 to John D. Rockefeller, who donated it to the City of New York. A second collection, The Abbaye, was sold by his estate to the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
