Artist Bio

Victoria Barr was born in 1937 in New York City. Barr studied briefly at Radcliffe College and then moved on to Parsons School of Design to study graphics and advertising. Barr is best known for her painting, stain painting, theater set design and lighting design. She states her stain painting techniques lead the viewer to feel a cosmic imaginary landscape when they look at her works. Barr has work in the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, Smith College Museum of Art and the Columbus Museum of Art. Barr’s father was Alfred Barr, a former director for the Museum of Modern Art.
