Barclay Lawrence Rubincam (July 2, 1920 - June 24, 1978) was an American artist who specialized in historical and natural scenes of his home: Chester County, Pennsylvania. Born in Green Valley, Pennsylvania (near Unionville), Rubincam spent his childhood on a family farm and met his wife as a teenager working at the Warner Theater in West Chester as an usher. After high school Rubincam attended the Wilmington Academy of Art, studying under N.C. Wyeth, Gayle Porter Hoskins, and Frank Schoonover. From 1942 until 1945 Rubincam served in the U.S. Army first as part of an engineering unit in the South Pacific and then as a member of the Army information education section for which he created posters and other illustrations. After getting out of the Army Rubincam spent the rest of his life working as an artist. By the time of his death, Rubincam had become 'practically an institution in Chester County' and was 'an important realist in the Brandywine school'.
