    PRISTINE SIGNED AND INSCRIBED SELF PORTRAIT BY D.F. BARRY. While he preferred to stay behind the camera lens, Barry did himself proud with this handsome self-portrait. Shown in three-piece suit and peaked hat, Barry stares calmly into the lens. The 8" x 10" photograph has been placed in one of Barry's attractive presentation mounts, with overall dimensions of 10" x 14". Barry's script blindstamp appears on his lapel in the image, and his print blindstamp is seen at the lower right corner of the mount. On verso, Barry has penciled an inscription to his younger sister: "D.F. Barry To my Sister Mrs. E. Moore." Also on verso, Barry's blue and white address sticker. This portrait is in magnificent condition and is an essential association piece for any Barry collector.
