Barry was born in Marseille, where he started his professional life as a hairdresser who studied painting in his free time at the local arts academy. In 1840 he moved to Paris and studied under Gudin. That same year, he exhibited at the Paris Salon and won a bronze medal for two seascapes. In 1862, Barry traveled to Egypt in the company of Prince Jerome Napoleon and returned with several paintings including Ruins at Karnak, View of the First Cataract, and Valley of the Tombs of the Caliphs. Orientalist subjects became one of his specialties, often featuring extensive vistas such as the one in the present work--also an Egyptian subject. Barry's paintings are in the collections of the Louvre, Versailles, Lyons, Algiers, and Marseilles.
