He was routinely harassed by British authorities and spent time in jail for publishing gay muscle magazines. He was also an accomplished artist and much of Barrington's artwork appeared in his numerous publications, such as the Art and Anthropometry series.
This is an original painting on board, which is signed by the artist in pencil (lower right corner) and dated 1980.
