Historical Note

Having established the Barnes Foundation in 1922 to “promote the advancement of education and the appreciation of the fine arts,” Dr. Albert C. Barnes spent the next decade enhancing its collections and developing the educational program. Barnes and Foundation teacher Violette de Mazia outlined their philosophy of aesthetics and art education in a series of publications, including The Art in Painting (1st ed., 1925),  Art and Education (1929),  The French Primitives and Their Forms from Their Origin to the End of the Fifteenth Century (1931), and  The Art of Henri-Matisse (1933). These publications made available to a wider reading audience the scientific method of analyzing artworks taught to students in classes at the Foundation. Barnes and de Mazia began work on  The Art of Renoir, their third collaboration, in 1932. A serendipitous Renoir retrospective at the Musée de l’Orangerie in 1933 allowed Barnes and de Mazia to conduct firsthand research on 126 paintings and 23 drawings and watercolors. Further research trips in 1934 augmented their studies. Dr. Barnes, who had steadily been amassing his impressive collection of Renoirs since 1912, felt no need to rush the book into publication. By 1935, Barnes numbered 175 Renoir paintings amongst his collection, the largest (and, he felt, the best) such collection in the world. His purchases attracted the attention of the press, and his name had become associated in the public’s mind with that of Renoir. Barnes felt it was necessary that he and de Mazia do the subject full justice and produce an authoritative study.

A team of Foundation employees assisted with the preparation of the manuscript. Mary Mullen and Laura V. Geiger undertook many secretarial and copy-editing duties, including taking dictation, typing drafts, and correcting punctuation and grammar. Laurence Buermeyer improved phrasing and readability, while Nelle E. Mullen and Foundation student Luigi Settanni helped de Mazia and Geiger compile and verify catalogue data. Barnes’s longtime friend and mentor, the educator and philosopher John Dewey, was writing his book Art as Experience at the same time, and he and Dr. Barnes exchanged copies of their works in progress and offered one another comments and suggestions. When Barnes admitted that he was flummoxed as to where, exactly, a footnote citing Dewey’s influence might be properly placed in  The Art of Renoir, Dewey replied that he had come across the same problem: “There are no chapters and not many, if any pages [in  Art as Experience] that don’t owe something to you” and he dedicated his book “To Albert C. Barnes, in gratitude.” Their mutual influence is further underscored by the introduction Dewey wrote for  The Art of Renoir, in which he deemed the Barnes Foundation “the most thoroughgoing embodiment of what I have to say about education.”

The Art of Renoir was published by G.P. Putnam’s Sons on March 5, 1935. In it, Barnes and de Mazia systematically examine Renoir’s development as an artist and relate his work to broader art historical traditions, especially Venetian painting and eighteenth-century French painting. The book was widely well reviewed and has never gone out of print. It is currently in its eighth printing and is still used in the Barnes Foundation’s educational program.

Scope and Content

This collection consists of background materials, drafts, catalogue data, and proofs for The Art of Renoir by Albert C. Barnes and Violette de Mazia. Background materials include notes taken by Barnes and de Mazia at several exhibitions, including the 1933 Renoir exhibition at the Musée de l’Orangerie, Paris, and  Quelques oeuvres importantes des Corot à van Gogh, held at Galerie Durand-Ruel, Paris, in 1934. Drafts are in manuscript, typescript, and carbon copy form, and in some cases include working notes for the insertion, deletion, and reordering of material. These notes document the dynamics of Barnes’s collaborative work method, recording which staff members took notes, typed drafts, or made corrections. In addition to drafts by coauthors Barnes and de Mazia, this series contains substantial revisions by Foundation associate Laurence Buermeyer and the draft of John Dewey’s introduction.

Notes that accompany two complete late drafts record biographical details of Renoir and his family and list the identities of models and dates for particular paintings. Specifics of provenance may be found in the catalogue data compiled by Foundation employees. A small number of galley and plate proofs survive; others, and perhaps some manuscript materials, were destroyed by the publisher G.P. Putnam’s Sons at the request of Nelle E. Mullen.

Arrangement

Intermediate drafts are generally arranged chronologically within the order of the final printed text. The exceptions to this rule are the drafts for “Development,” which are arranged only chronologically. The “Development” portion of the book was reworked extensively, and very little of the original draft order is reflected in the finished text. In this case, a chronological arrangement better preserves the original order of the drafts.

Subseries 3. Late drafts
 Dates: 1933–1935   Extent: 3.24 linear feet

Arrangement

Late drafts are generally arranged by state (version 1, version 2, etc.) within the order of the final printed text. The exceptions to this rule are the drafts for “Development,” which are arranged only chronologically. The “Development” portion of the book was reworked extensively, and very little of the original draft order is reflected in the finished text. In this case, a chronological arrangement better preserves the original order of the drafts.
