Janet Flanner in Paris (1927) photographed by Berenice Abbot. Flanner's bi-weekly "Letter From Paris" was published in The New Yorker for a half-century, and then collected in the award-winning Paris Journal and other volumes. They offer a better and more reliable alternative to such memoirs as Hemingway's A Moveable Feast.
The clothing of Robinson Crusoe in this N.C. Wyeth illustration is a little late in the century for Barrow's time, but the spirit of the painting, of the rugged adventurer praising God after having survived hardship, fits. This pose is certainly in character for Barrow.
