About the Artist (1872-1937)  "Myron Barlow, well-known Detroit artist, who for many years lived at Etaples, France, was awarded the Legion of Honor by the French government.

The French government, like the British, issues several classes of decorations for distinction in various walks of like, of which the Legion of Honor is the highest and most prized. In recent years it has seldom been awarded to foreigners.

Mr. Barlow was the son of Adolph Barlow, 362 Woodland Avenue.

Mr. Barlow studied in France under Gerome and other masters at the Beaux Arts. In 1907 he was elected a member of the Societe Nationale des Beaux Arts. His pictures won gold medals at the World's Fair in St. Louis in 1904 and at the Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco. The Detroit Institute of Arts owns several of his pictures, and he was also represented in the Pennsylvania Academy, and other art galleries in both America and France. Four of his murals adorn the tower of Temple Beth El.

Accustomed to make almost annual visits to Detroit, Mr. Barlow was compelled by the World War to make a stay of more than four years here, for Etaples became an armed camp. On several occasions, his studio, a mile out of town, narrowly missed destruction by German bombs." taken from AskArt.com having been submitted by Susan Barlow.
