David Barker

Australia

1888 - 06 May 1946


About

David Barker was a founding committee member and exhibitor with the Australian Painter-Etchers' Society from 1921, and a prolific etcher in the 1920s and 30s. Barker exhibited seventeen works in the Australian Painter-Etchers' Society's first exhibition, a number of which had been shown the previous year at Gayfield Shaw’s Art Gallery.

The majority of the etchings by Barker included in the exhibition were of Middle Eastern subjects, where he had served in the AIF during WWI, and made numerous paintings and drawings. Later in the decade he made more etchings of local subjects, including several Sydney cityscapes.
