James Barry
Birth: Oct. 11, 1741
Death: Feb. 22, 1806

Largely a self-taught artist, Barry became a member of the Royal Academy in 1773 and obtained the commission to decorate the Royal Society rooms in 1777. This occupied him until 1783. Barry was professor of painting at the Royal Academy from 1782 to 1799, but he died in poverty. His most famous work is "The Progress of Human Culture", a series of six monumental paintings done for the Great Room of the Royal Academy.
