    Barlow made a series of large pictures with birds and other animals, which are datable from the early 1660s to August 1681 (when John Evelyn described them); in the 18th century the pictures were brought to Clandon Park, which was destroyed by fire on 29 April 2015. It seems that some of Barlow's pictures survived. NB: two comparable pictures with birds were at Longleat, see Longleat 2002, no. 626.
