Abstract
The Barnes Foundation’s Photograph Collection is comprised of albumen prints, glass negatives, silver gelatin prints, lantern slides, acetate and polyester film negatives, copy negatives, and copy prints. The collection contains both formal and informal photographs of the institution’s founder, Albert C. Barnes, the many people historically associated with the Foundation, including photographs of their dogs, and photographs of the exteriors and interiors of the Barnes Foundation’s buildings in Merion and at Ker-Feal in Chester County. The collection also holds hundreds of prints depicting the Foundation’s vast art collection, both individual art works and the wall ensembles in the Gallery, as well as photographs capturing the ever-changing living collection in the Arboretum of the Barnes Foundation.

Historical note

On December 4, 1922, Dr. Albert C. Barnes (1872 – 1951) received a charter from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania establishing the Barnes Foundation as an educational institution. Barnes planned to use his growing art collection as an instructive medium “to promote the advancement of education and the appreciation of the fine arts.”[1] He had been collecting art for many years, exchanging his paintings for others he deemed of greater value, although not necessarily in monetary terms.[2] In 1914, he told his friend Leo Stein, “I have read conscientiously practically every book on art that has been published during the last few years… in an effort to find out what is a good painting; what was the mind behind the painting, what broad principle of psychology would explain those paintings which appealed to me, and tried to figure out in my own mind which painter or group of painters represent what I consider the basic principles of true art.”[3]

When Dr. Barnes began earnestly collecting art in 1912, he reconnected with his high school friend, artist William James Glackens (1870 – 1938).[4] Glackens went to Paris on a buying trip for Barnes in the winter of 1912 but, from that point forward, Barnes was on his own – buying, selling, and trading both fine art and crafts, creating what would become one of the world’s greatest art collections. While there are very few photographs documenting the wall ensembles that Barnes continually re-arranged in order to create a teaching collection, his lifelong passion for collecting art is well recorded in the thousands of photographs of individual art works held in the photograph collection in the Barnes Foundation Archives.

PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE ART COLLECTION

The photograph collection holds hundreds of silver gelatin prints made from glass plate negatives, most of which depict art works in the Foundation’s art collection. Barnes and his dealers in Paris sent these glass plates or cliché-verre back and forth across the Atlantic via steamship following their discussions about art.[5] While it is difficult to imagine such a cumbersome and time-consuming method of communication today, these plates, shot with long exposures and a short depth of field, offer finely detailed images of the paintings and sculptures being offered for sale. Most of these images have been dated 1915–1925 (although some appear to be much older) and are believed to have been used primarily for marketing purposes and not as a means of recording the art collection.

Rather than shipping glass negatives, the Galerie Durand-Ruel, one of the first of the Paris dealers from whom Dr. Barnes purchased art, sent prints of paintings dry-mounted onto pale green board edged in gold and stamped with the dealer’s name. Some of these prints also include the name of T. Sardnal, a photographer who worked in Paris in the late 1800s.[6] While many of the actual works now reside in other collections, most of the prints depict art work by Pierre-Auguste Renoir that Barnes purchased for his collection. He may have retained these prints because of their elegant presentation or simply because they depicted the work of his favorite artist.

Early photographs of art works were also captured by Philadelphia photographers Conrad Frederic Haesler, a graduate of the Pennsylvania Institution for the Deaf and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts,[7] and Philadelphia painter and photographer Charles Sheeler (1883–1965). Barnes hired Haeseler in 1914 to photograph Glackens’s Pony Ballet along with several others.[8] He may have been interested in creating a visual record or inventory of his nascent collection but photography also proved useful to illustrate his articles about art. In 1923, Barnes hired Sheeler to photograph the African sculptures and paintings in the collection. Sheeler’s photograph of Thomas Eakins’s  Portrait of Dr. Agnew, a painting which was once in Barnes’s collection, appeared with the article, “Some Remarks on Appreciation,” published in the journal,  Arts, in 1923.[10]

Once the Barnes Foundation was launched and the Merion buildings completed, Barnes hired Philadelphia photographer W. Vivian Chappel from 1923 to 1928 to shoot both individual art works as well as the wall ensembles arranged in the Cret Gallery.[11] Captured in warm-toned black and white, these images reveal the early ensembles which scarcely covered the walls, the same walls resplendent today with the addition of ironwork, African masks, and manuscript illuminations. Unfortunately, Barnes did not photograph the wall ensembles in the ensuing years as he continued to add to his collection and rearrange the ensembles. Only when directed by the board of trustees in December 1951, did Foundation instructor and photographer Angelo Pinto (1908–1994) photograph the wall ensembles for the second and last time, capturing the collection as Dr. Barnes left it before his death.[12]

The photograph collection offers much more than a static visual history of the Foundation’s art collection. For example, in 1928, when Barnes sent paintings in need of repair to William Suhr, a conservator who worked at the Detroit Institute of Art,[13] it appears that he ordered “before and after” shots of the conserved works. W. Vivian Chappel photographed Honoré Daumier’s Watercarrier (Le porteur d'eau) “before restoration” and Detroit photographer L. S. (Lycurgus S.) Glover photographed the same painting again “after restoration.” [14] Chappel also photographed Francisco de Goya’s  Portrait of Jacques (Santiago) Galos, “after cleaning.”[15] Even now, the photographs of art work, their visual images as well as the information found written on their versos, provide vital clues to the Foundation’s conservation staff as they strive to maintain the health of the art collection.

One of the richest treasures in the collection is a series of prints depicting the evolution of Henri Matisse’s mural, The Dance. From 1931 to 1933, Matisse sent photographs from his garage studio in Nice to Barnes in Merion offering him a visual record of his progress on the commission as it developed from charcoal drawings to cut-paper collages to the final paintings on canvas. While some photographs depict individual panels sketched in charcoal, Matisse carefully fastened small prints of each of the three panels together with brown paper tape, creating an overall image of the mural. Interestingly, this group of photographs includes images of the mural before and after Matisse discovered his incorrect measurement of the lunettes in the Foundation’s main gallery.

Dr. Barnes also illustrated the books published by the Foundation with black and white photographs of art work. From 1930 to 1934, artist and photographer Barbara Morgan (1900–1992) along with her husband, Willard D. Morgan (1900–1967), captured the African sculptures as well as Native American objects, and many of the Matisse paintings, especially those destined for the book, Art of Henri-Matisse.[16] Although Barbara Morgan corresponded with Barnes about the images, she may have handled only that aspect of their business. Research indicates that she did not start using the camera until 1935.[17] In May 1932, Barnes hired E. Richard Deats, a commercial photographer with a studio in Philadelphia, to finish the Matisse photos.[18] It appears that twenty-four Morgan photos were used in the publication; the rest were made by Deats.[19] The Morgans, also hired to photograph the Renoir paintings, failed to finish the prints in time to be included in the book,  Art of Renoir.[20] Barnes, clearly dissatisfied with the Morgans, hired Deats once again to shoot the Renoir paintings in 1933.[21]

The collection contains thousands of prints of art works currently held in other collections around the world. As with the prints made from glass negatives, these photographs were likely sent from dealers offering art works for sale. A number of them contain information on their versos that actually connect the photograph to a particular dealer. Perhaps the most surprising of these works that Barnes chose not to buy were two by Vincent van Gogh, Starry Night (Nuit Etoilée)[22] and  The Bedroom.[23] But also included among these photographs are images of those art works that were once part of the Foundation’s collection. Late in 1922, when Barnes first discovered artist Chaim Soutine (1893–1943), he bought every painting that his dealer had on hand. Barnes shipped the paintings to Merion and photographed them, establishing a visual record of the purchase, and evidence of which of those works had been accessioned into the collection.[24]

PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE LIVING COLLECTION

On October 13, 1922, Barnes purchased “Red-Slates,” the Joseph Lapsley Wilson (d. 1928) estate situated on a fifteen-acre arboretum near his home on Latch’s Lane.[25] The charter establishing the Foundation as an educational institution also included the study and appreciation of arboriculture,[26] and as he had recorded images of his art collection, Barnes also hired photographers to capture “portraits” of the trees and other plantings in the arboretum surrounding his residence and gallery in Merion. When Barnes first sketched his plans for the Foundation, he clearly stated that the arboretum established by Wilson in 1880 would be maintained and that he would “endeavor to make it the finest and most representative in America.”[27] Barnes named the arboretum for Wilson who served as its director until his death in 1928.

In 1925, Philadelphia photographer Walter H. Evans produced the earliest images of the living collection, one of them depicting Curator of the Arboretum John W. Prince in front of the Franklinia alatamaha (FranklinTree).[28] The planting dates of the trees and bushes included on the versos of these photographs, mostly from the late nineteenth century, indicate that they must have been part of the Wilson collection. Two years later, W. Vivian Chappel photographed individual members of the living collection, and also the “spite fence,” the massive stone barricade that Barnes built along the rear of the property in protest of a housing development of small, two-family homes.

The most informative and comprehensive photographs of the arboretum were shot by Foundation staff member Nicholas Valle in 1933. Labeled as “landscape-units,” the trees and groups of plantings were seen to serve an educational purpose in the Wilson Arboretum similar to that of the ensembles in the Cret Gallery. Valle shot the greenhouse and the experimental gardens that once grew where the parking lot is today as well as views of the woodlands, which include the teahouse and fish pond. But these bucolic images of the grounds were actually created as supporting evidence in a court case that year involving taxation, illustrating how each landscape-unit formed a part of “the total composition of landscape-effect in the Arboretum of the Barnes Foundation.”[29]

PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE FOUNDATION BUILDINGS

After purchasing the Wilson Arboretum, Barnes hired architect Paul Philippe Cret (1876 – 1945) to design his residence and a gallery.[30] He immersed himself in every step of the construction, from the selection of the building stone shipped by steamer from France[31] to decisions regarding interior wall coverings.[32] Building began in the spring of 1923 and continued through the following year. It is curious that there are so few photographs depicting the work progress. Those extant images of the buildings under construction have been attributed to John W. Prince, who photographed them in 1924.[33] The earliest photograph depicting the completed buildings has been attributed to Walter H. Evans, who received payment for prints of the “Barnes Foundation, Merion” in April of 1925.[34]

Over the years, Barnes continued to photograph the Merion buildings, from details of its tiled front portico to long shots capturing a view of the “house” from the west lawn, as well as the changes made to its appearance – the installation of awnings, plantings of bushes, trees, and flower gardens – and also its upkeep. Only a year after its completion, in 1926, Paul Philippe Cret was called back to repair the collapsed front steps of the gallery building.[35]

Of the interior of the administration building, which was Dr. and Mrs. Barnes’s home in Merion, the collection holds only prints captured some years after their passing. However, Virginia Werden (1913–2009), while working as a secretary for A.C. Barnes Company, photographed Ker-Feal, Barnes’s country estate in Chester County, capturing the farm as it looked when he first acquired it in 1940 and then after the architectural firm, Kneedler, Mirick & Zantzinger, restored and expanded the buildings. Werden also photographed Ker-Feal’s interiors, creating a series of intimate snap-shots of the rooms newly refreshed to accommodate Barnes’s ever-expanding American decorative art collection. John Condax, a Foundation instructor, photographed the interiors of Ker-Feal once again in 1941. Barnes seemed especially pleased with Condax’s work, citing it as an example to House & Garden magazine for their portrayal of his country home in their December 1942 article.[36] But the most extensive record of the interiors of Ker-Feal was beautifully photographed by Angelo Pinto in 1952 after Mrs. Barnes and the Board of Trustees requested a visual inventory of the decorative art collection.[37]

PHOTOGRAPHS OF DR. BARNES AND OTHERS

Among the earliest photographs in the collection is an albumen print on a carte de visite mount depicting a youthful Albert C. Barnes along with an acquaintance, George Rockhill of Oxford University, captured in Sulby Glen on the Isle of Man by Arthur Hadley of Victoria Studios in 1893.[38] Unfortunately, there are no images of Barnes with his family, as a foreign student in Germany or as an emerging entrepreneur in Philadelphia. Not until Barnes married Laura Leggett (1875–1966) in 1901 did he pose again for a formal portrait.[39] Yet, there are no photographs of them while on their European honeymoon or at their homes in Overbrook and Merion. Not until 1932, on board the steamer, Ile de France, are the two portrayed together.

Soon after the installation of Henri Matisse’s The Dance, Pierre Matisse (1900–1989), visited the Foundation and photographed Barnes and members of his staff, including the Mullen sisters, Nelle E. (1884–1967) and Mary (1875–1957), and Angelo Pinto (1908–1994). The collection holds a contact print made from a strip of 35 mm negatives from this visit depicting Barnes preparing for one of his Sunday lectures in the Gallery to which he added music to his discussions on art. Pierre Matisse sent two enlargements of Barnes with Renoir’s   Bathers in the Forest (Baigneuses dans la forêt) and Cézanne’s  Bathers at Rest (Baigneurs au repos), both handsome compositions of the collector with his paintings.

Dr. Barnes often referred others such as artists Henri Matisse, William Glackens, and Giorgio de Chirico to New York photographer Carl Van Vechten (1880–1964), a music critic and patron of the Harlem Renaissance.[40] Van Vechten also photographed Barnes. The images he captured of Barnes on the grounds of the Barnes Foundation Arboretum are rather candid but, at least once, in 1937, Barnes traveled to New York City for a formal sitting, a portrait captured in front of Van Vechten’s signature silver-foil background. Throughout the 1940s, artist Angelo Pinto photographed Dr. Barnes along with his art collection, students, and staff. Born in Italy, Pinto grew up in Philadelphia and, along with two of his four brothers, began taking classes at the Foundation in the 1920s. The three Pinto brothers received traveling scholarships from the Foundation, but it was to Angelo that Barnes offered a teaching position in 1935.[41] In 1941, he gave Angelo Pinto permission to make experiments in color photography in the Gallery[42] but was disappointed in the quality of the color reproductions when those photographs were later printed in the Saturday Evening Post.[43] Barnes did not believe that photographs faithfully recorded the color in works of art and, as a result, they could be misleading. A long-standing policy evolved that limited art collection photography to black and white prints to be used primarily for the illustration of educational texts.[44] From 1940 to 1946, Angelo Pinto or the Pinto Studios photographed Barnes while lecturing in the Cret Gallery, working in the conservation laboratory with staff, or discussing art and philosophy with John Dewey.[45]

Dr. Barnes never collected photographs as works of art; photography was not seriously considered an art form until the mid-twentieth century. Instead, both he and his wife saved formal and candid images that reflected the creation of the Foundation and of those individuals engaged in its operation, of their canine companions, and of their growing art and horticultural collections.

Scope and Contents

The Barnes Foundation’s Photograph Collection holds approximately 8,000 catalogued photographs, and three photograph albums, which include the most common forms of 20th century black and white processes and formats: albumen prints, silver gelatin prints, tintypes, glass negatives, glass copy negatives, glass lantern slides, nitrate, acetate, and polyester negatives, copy negatives, and copy prints that date from 1864 to 2003. It is an artificial collection created from photographs found in the offices and storage areas of the administration and gallery buildings on the Merion campus. Over the years, the Foundation staff generated or gathered photographs reflecting their various activities. For example, the art teachers created files of photographs to use as visual aids for classes. Many of these images originally arrived by mail as examples of art works offered for sale by dealers. Others, captured by Foundation photographers and other commercial studios, once illustrated the Foundation’s many educational publications.

The photographs vary significantly in size and in physical condition. Included are 2 ¼ in., 4 x 5 in., 5 x 7 in., 7 x 9 in., and 8 x 10 in. film negatives as well as 4 x 5 in., 7 x 9 ½ in., and 9 ½ x 11 ¾ in. glass negatives depicting art works in the Foundation’s collection, and also those of de-accessioned pieces. The photographic prints range in size from 35 mm contact prints made from a roll of film shot by Pierre Matisse to 5 x 18 in. assemblages that Henri Matisse created by taping three smaller prints together. Most of the negatives and prints are in good condition, considering the heavy use experienced by some; conservation treatment has only been required for some of the cracked and broken glass plate negatives.

The collection holds surprisingly few formal portraits of Albert C. Barnes and his wife, Laura L. Barnes. There are no candid photographs of the two together except for one captured on January 2, 1932, Barnes’s sixtieth birthday, when the two were photographed at dinner on board the steamship Ile de France. Artist Angelo Pinto is credited with some of the finest photographs of Barnes in action – with his art collection, lecturing to students, and working in the conservation lab. Evidence found in the Albert C. Barnes correspondence indicates that these photographs were originally taken in color, however, all of the Pinto prints held in the collection are black and white. Laura Leggett Barnes’s wedding portraits remain in her Bride’s Book, part of a separate collection of her papers, but a few additional candid photographs of her can be found in the People series.

Dr. Barnes owned many dogs over the years, all pure bred, but his favorite was Fidèle de Port Manech (1937–1951), a mongrel puppy that he met while vacationing in France. Of all the dogs Barnes ever owned, Fidèle was the only one who sat for a professional portrait. It may have been Mrs. Barnes’s idea; she also had her dogs professionally photographed.

The oldest photograph album in the collection once belonged to Mrs. Barnes. Covered in red velvet, it holds sixteen heavy board pages edged in gold and contains forty-eight portraits of her family. Most are cabinet cards but smaller photographs, including two tin types, are slipped into four-up pages. Another album, covered in green and gold patterned silk, is inscribed "To Mr. Paul Mallon, Tienlung Mt., Peking, Feb. 20th, 1924." It folds out flat when its pin closures are removed and contains forty-eight black and white photographs mounted on brown board depicting various views of the art work found within the caves at Tienlung Mountain in China.

Perhaps the most extensive series in the photograph collection is that depicting art work in the Barnes Foundation’s art collection. Many of these prints have been stamped by the photographer, and their dates puzzled out by cross-referencing the photographer with Barnes’s correspondence or financial records. Although, these images are useful for marking physical changes to the art in the Foundation’s collection over time, the photographs depicting art work in other collections offer some additional interesting evidence about works that were once in the collection and subsequently sold, traded, or given away as Barnes sought to expand and diversify his collection.

Unfortunately, there are no photographs documenting the expansion of the collection and the ever-changing wall ensembles between the years of 1928 and 1951. In 1951, the board of trustees charged Angelo Pinto with photographing the wall ensembles as Dr. Barnes left them before his death. In addition to these, there are photographs that appear to have been taken after the wall coverings were replaced. The lighting is cast from a different angle and, in some cases, the arrangement of objects such a tea pot are reversed.

There is also scarce photographic documentation recording the expansion of Barnes’s collection of American decorative art at Ker-Feal, Barnes’s farm located near Rapp’s Corner in Chester County, Pennsylvania. There are photographs depicting exterior and interior views of the property dating from 1940 and 1941, but the art collection there was not photographed again until 1952.[1] However, rather detailed documentation of the expansion of the farmhouse has been captured which includes “before and after” shots of the restoration and renovation by Kneedler, Mirrick, and Zantzinger.

Although there are few photographs of the Merion buildings while they were still under construction, the Buildings series documents this campus over time and from a variety of angles as the seasons changed and the plantings matured. Perhaps as evidence of their wish for privacy, there are no photographs of the administration building (or residence) as it appeared when Dr. and Mrs. Barnes lived there. The only prints depicting the interior rooms of that building were most likely captured after Mrs. Barnes’s death in 1966.

In 1991, the Barnes Foundation offices on Haywood Road were closed and their contents moved to the administration building in Merion. Along with some small black and white prints of the office interiors, there are contact prints made from 35 mm color negatives depicting the art and furniture once housed there. (These are among the few color prints that have been accessioned into the photograph collection at this time).

Photographs of the living collection in the Barnes Foundation Arboretum depict specific plants and trees as well as landscape arrangements in Merion, whereas others broadly display the foliage of various geographical terrains throughout the world. The images also include hand drawn illustrations of plants with some text included as well as line drawings of maps of weather patterns and temperatures in Pennsylvania. Many prints include stamps identifying their photographers which offer a clue to their dates.

Represented in the People series are photographs of the staff and instructors of the Barnes Foundation’s art and horticulture programs as well as photographs of well-known writers, composers, and artists. Most notable are those of Director of Education of the Art Department Violette de Mazia standing with artist Georgia O’Keeffe in the Gallery, portraits of philosopher John Dewey, who served as the Foundation’s first Director of Education, composer Nicolas Nabokov, hired in 1934 as the director of musical education at the Foundation, artist Henri Matisse at work sketching The Dance, poet Langston Hughes, artist Jean Hugo photographed in Paris in 1964, and art dealer Ambroise Vollard with an inscription from him to Mrs. Barnes.

The photograph collection includes a series devoted to Foundation events but, at the present time, it is essentially a place holder for future accruals. Representing only a small number of images, they are some of the most intriguing of all – prints depicting the public opening of the Foundation on March 18, 1961. These photographs depict a crowd of people dressed in winter clothing, gathering by the front gates, and waiting along the sidewalk on Latch’s Lane as several state police officers stand by. The versos of the prints record the time of day as from 9:10 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
