Richard Barry and Frederick Villers


Richard Barry and Frederick Villers



Date Created


These are excellent portraits of two very noted war artists and correspondents, Mr. Richard Barry, who was with the Third Corps of the Japanese Army in front of Port Arthur from the very beginning of the siege, and Mr. Frederick Villiers, the well-known artist of the London Illustrated News. Mr. Barry, who stands at the left in the picture in a long overcoat, took all of the photographs from which this set of pictures is reproduced. They are therefore authentic and true to life. Mr. Barry's descriptions of the famous siege were published in the Century Magazine, Collier's Weekly, Everybody's Magazine, Saturday Evening Post and other high-class periodicals in America, England and France, and the best of them are to be found in his book "Port Arthur," together with Frenchsh mateial that nobody could write except one who was in the thick of the fight and spent months in camps with the little yellow men from the Island Empire.
