Barnet was born in Beverly, Massachusetts, in 1911 and studied art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Art Students League, NYC. He began his career as a graphic artist by working on a Public Works of Art Project which led to more work as a professional lithographic printer. Barnet is proficient in the field of etching, lithography, and woodcut making. His early work shows strong feeling for the working class and the unfortunate poor in America. These prints contain strong contrast and vivid patterns of action. Art critics have compared Barnet's work to those of the German Expressionists and Honore Daumier.
