Barker was born in Chicago and studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Haverford College, and the University of Pennsylvania, where he received a Ph.D. in Classical Archaeology. In 1927, he studied lithography with Bolton Brown and decided to devote the remainder of his years, creating and drawing his images on stone. A master of shading, lighting, and texture, he used the crayon to show various aspects of nature, changing skies, and landscape, which surrounded his eighteen acre Pennsylvania home. Barker is noted as one of the great poetic lithographers, showing great respect for his medium, while displaying flawless technique and craftsmanship in his aesthetic renditions on stone. His prints are represented in some thirty museums. Adams, Clinton, American Lithographers, 1900-1960, Albuquerque, 1983, p.64.
