Historical Note

Dr. Albert C. Barnes established the Barnes Foundation in 1922 to “promote the advancement of education and the appreciation of the fine arts.” In late January 1925, Dr. Barnes’s book of aesthetic philosophy and art criticism, The Art in Painting, was privately published by the Barnes Foundation Press in a first edition of one thousand copies. It was intended to be “an experiment in the adaptation to plastic art of the principles of the scientific method.” By early fall1925, the book had nearly sold out, prompting Dr. Barnes to contact Harcourt Brace & Company about the possibility of a new printing. Although Harcourt expressed reservations about reprinting a book that had been previously published, they believed  The Art in Painting to be “so original and important” that they were willing to accept the project. Dr. Barnes, with his characteristic business acumen, suggested that it be published as a first edition again, as the market for the book was largely untouched. With some additions and deletions, including a new frontispiece and a rewritten preface,  The Art in Painting was republished as a first edition by Harcourt Brace & Company in April 1926.

A year later Dr. Barnes proposed another edition to include his recent studies of German, Dutch, Flemish, and French artistic traditions. This edition would incorporate the contributions of a new Barnes Foundation employee, Violette de Mazia, whom Dr. Barnes had hired as French teacher in 1925 and who by 1927 had taken Thomas Munro’s place as a teacher of art and aesthetics at the Foundation. The working method for The Art in Painting, and for other books by Dr. Barnes and staff at the Foundation, was frequently collaborative in nature. Henry Hart, who handled the publication of Barnes’s  The Art of Henri-Matisse for Scribner’s in 1933, described the process in his later biography of Barnes. Hart wrote that the sections dealing with aesthetics and philosophy were “checked” by Laurence Buermeyer, while Mary Mullen was responsible for correcting grammar and punctuation and Violette de Mazia did research for the painting analyses. Internal evidence and correspondence suggest that this view is largely correct, although Buermeyer in particular probably played a larger role than Hart credited. Buermeyer, called “Harold” by Foundation staff because of his resemblance to silent film star Harold Lloyd, wrote chapter drafts based on Dr. Barnes’s notes for the first editions of  The Art in Painting and revised, condensed, and rewrote chapters for the second and third editions. He did not accompany Dr. Barnes on the trips to Europe that inspired the second edition, however, and was not able to contribute as much to its writing. Violette de Mazia, Foundation teacher Jeannette Portenar, and secretaries Mary Mullen and Laura V. Geiger did travel with Dr. Barnes to Europe in 1927 for research purposes. They helped to complete the second edition, published in May 1928.

In 1931 and 1934 Dr. Barnes submitted proposals for a new edition to Harcourt Brace & Company, but the Depression had an adverse effect on book sales, and each time the publisher declined. Nor was Dr. Barnes willing to undertake the cost of publication, as he had for the second edition. He was, in any case, busy with other work. He and Violette de Mazia coauthored three books in four years: The French Primitives and Their Forms (1931),  The Art of Henri-Matisse (1933), and  The Art of Renoir (1935). Much of their research for these books is integrated into the third edition of  The Art in Painting, published by Harcourt Brace & Company in April 1937. Foundation employees Cynthia Flannery Stine and Philip Jenney helped to compile information, type drafts, and copy edit the manuscript. While the second edition was substantially the same with the addition of chapters on German, French, Dutch, and Sienese traditions, the third edition was completely rewritten and half of the one hundred and twenty-two illustrations were replaced. The book reflects Dr. Barnes’s current interests, with references to the art of the Pennsylvania Dutch, Georgia O’Keeffe, Charles Demuth, and Surrealism. The third edition was the last, as Dr. Barnes moved on to other projects.  The Art in Painting has since gone through seven reprintings and is still used in the Barnes Foundation’s educational programs.

Scope and Content

This collection consists of background materials, drafts, proofs, and final printed text of the three editions of The Art in Painting by Albert C. Barnes. Background materials include notes taken by students in the course in art appreciation sponsored by the Barnes Foundation and taught by Thomas Munro at the University of Pennsylvania in 1925, as well as travel notes gathered by Barnes and his staff during the course of several trips abroad in the 1920s and 1930s. Some travel notes are in shorthand, and many are written on ship’s note paper or on hotel stationery. They consist of analyses of artists and paintings in particular galleries, museums, churches, and collections in New York, London, Paris, Venice, Florence, Rome, and Berlin. Only travel notes directly pertaining to  The Art in Painting are found here. Trips often provided source material for more than one book, and travel notes that served as the basis for multiple works may be found in the separate collection, Travel Writings.

Drafts of The Art in Painting are in manuscript, typescript, carbon copy, mimeograph copy, galley, and page proof form, and are frequently corrected by Barnes and by his associates Laurence Buermeyer, Violette de Mazia, Mary Mullen, Laura V. Geiger, Thomas Munro, Cynthia Flannery Stine, and Philip Jenney. These drafts provide evidence of Barnes’s work methods, which were highly collaborative, and demonstrate the evolution of his thinking on art. Early drafts of the first edition painting analyses sometimes contain information regarding the original placement of artworks that were displayed in Dr. Barnes’s home before the Barnes Foundation gallery was completed. This collection also contains promotional materials for  The Art in Painting and reprints of reviews.
