Rare images of Barnes in middle-age, taken by her friend Berenice Abbott at her studio in New York. These images remained unpublished and largely unseen until they were included in Hank O'Neal's 1990 memoir of his relationship with Barnes, "Life is Painful, Nasty and Short … in My Case it Has Only Been Painful and Nasty." Abbott's portraits of Barnes from the 1920s created the enduring image of the author.
