About the Barnes Foundation
The Barnes Foundation was established by Albert C. Barnes in 1922 to "promote the advancement of education and the appreciation of the fine arts and horticulture." The Barnes holds one of the largest collections of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and early Modern paintings, with extensive holdings by Renoir, Cézanne, Matisse, Picasso, Rousseau, Modigliani, Soutine and de Chirico, as well as Old Master paintings, important examples of African sculpture and Native American ceramics, American paintings and decorative arts, and antiquities from the Mediterranean region and Asia.
The Barnes will re-open in May 2012 in a new state-of-the-art building, designed by Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects, located on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Center City, Philadelphia. The collection will be displayed in a Gallery that replicates the scale, proportion and configuration of the Foundation's original galleries in Merion. The new building also will house a 5,000-square-foot space devoted to special exhibitions, as well as classrooms, a 150-seat auditorium, and much-needed facilities for painting conservation and research.
