Reply to NHolmes's Post: The Date information ,I got by going online SBC Search under ARTIST John J Barry. Those were the dates they had posted for him. I, Myself do not know anything about the artist. The picture lookks like it is ink on paper. Paper looks as if it has fibers in it. I hope this helps.

Artist Biography: Etcher. Born Hamilton, Canada, 1885.

See if the picture here is similar to what you are seeing in yours for style
http://search.famsf.org:8080/view.shtml?record=28865&=list&=1&=&=And

It looks to me like the English artist John Barry worked a lot on ivory instead of paper.

You might get more info by contacting the folks where the dry point is located.
You might find a group like this one can help you with appraisal value

Hmm well the link worked for me - you need to cut and paste the whole thing into the browser and it did take a while to load.
Try going to www.google.com and searching on
"XXXXX XXXXXph Barry" artist
as the search words - I got three links when I did that - include the quotes just as shown
Under the first link you will get the other artist when you click on it but read down below in the list of links on the bottom to find this link
XXXXX XXXXXph Barry, San Juan Mission, 19th - 20th century
The Metropolitan Museum of Art -
and click on that to see the dry point picture of the San Juan Mission.
