    Hi, I don't think that this is a C.M. Barker original. I think that the phrase "D'apres C.M. Barker" indicates that the image was copied from a C.M. Barker image, or was inspired by the same, or by the artist's style. It looks like a Barker image, but I couldn't find this exact image. Have you found it? As for the phrase "feuille de vigne", that means 'vine leaf''. So, is this an acrylic painting on a real leaf, or a leaf facsimile? I don't see any indication that Barker painted in acrylics. She was known to use the following mediums/techniques: watercolor enhanced with pen-and-ink, black-and-white drawings, oil paints, and pastels. She died in 1973. Here's a good article on her, with lots of links that might help you find out more about your image. Best wishes for success. Charming image!
