Will R. Barnes

I have been exploring the digitised images of the New York Public Library thanks to my friend Fiona.
My initial search yielded these fantastic fish costumes of 1910 designed by Will R. Barnes.

Will. R Barnes ( 1851-1939) was an Australian costume designer who emigrated to American the 1890's he was a cartoonist like his father and an accomplished watercolourist.
