Mary Barnet

My name is Mary Elizabeth Mary Barnet (common nickname : Betty or Betsy). My father called me by both to differentiate me from my Mother artist Mary Sinclair. It is Copyright, 1972, Will Barnet. All Rights reserved. But I am certain that he, artist extraordinaire & teacher and colleague of my husband, artist Richard E. Schiff my father received our Nation's highest Arts Award right before his passing and was a Chevalier of The French Legion of Honor, would have given me, his eldest daughter permission to reproduce it ! So here's M.E.!
