Additional Information

This painting was executed by Paul E. Barr, the first Chair of UND’s Art Department—a position he held for a quarter century.

Harley E. French, who was Dean of UND’s Medical School from 1911-1947, was the painting’s original owner and it was later in the possession of his daughter, Mary Margaret French Frank and her husband Richard Frank—a Jewish refugee from Nazi Germany who taught in the Chemistry Department for 20 years.

A special request was made by the donor that the painting be hung in a location within the School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
