Detroit Museum School, Art Institute of Chicago, Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Academie Colarossi

"Myron Barlow (1873-1937) was born in Ionia, MI. He studied in the United States and throughout Europe, including France and Holland. Taking from his appreciation of Vermeer, Barlow portrayed figures, often women, in interior settings that were frequently isolated and motionless. The figures were surrounded by a dream like atmosphere rendered in a single, dominant tonality, often blue. The artist also favored Impressionism and muralist Puvis de Chavannes' flat, decorative aim. His main body of work represented the peasantry and countryside of Northern France.
Barlow showed his work at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, where he exhibited almost every year from 1903-1910. He also showed paintings at the National Academy of Design in New York in 1907 and 1916. He received a Knight of the Legion of Honor, France. His work was exhibited at the 1904 St. Louis Exposition, where he received a gold medal. He also received a gold medal at the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco. His work is in the collection of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Detroit Insititute of Art, the Palais des Beaux-Arts, Douai, France and the Municiple Collection, Etaples, France. He was a member of the Association of American Artists in Paris, the Paris Society of American Painters and the Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts.
After living alone in his studio in the French Village of Trepied, Barlow died during one of his annual trips to Etaples, France in 1937." [Source: Unknown and currently being researched.]
