As happens sometimes, I couldn’t find much biographical information about the pulp artist Bernard Barton. I was able to find his dates of birth and date at wikimedia but otherwise, there wasn’t much information online, beyond his work. Bernard Barton was one of the few artist of the pulp paperback era to regularly sign his work, which means that even if I can’t find out much about his life, at least we can appreciate his work.
As far as I can tell, Bernard Barton is no relation to Harry Barton, another prominent artist of the pulp era. (Interestingly, Harry’s full name was Harold Bernard Barton.)
