Notes NOTES: These drawings, presented in 1938 by Caryl Arthur Ransome Barry (Barry’s great-grandson), would appear to be those kept by the family to prove Barry's authorship of the design in the dispute between his heirs and those of A. W. N. Pugin. A label, which was once attached to this drawing, states: 'N.B. This drawing is entirely by Sir C. Barry and is his original design from which the working drawings for the alteration of the House of Commons ceiling were made by me, although it has been incorrectly stated that it was made by another. E.[dward] M.[iddleton] B.[arry]Ap. 186-."
