Acquisitions récentes de la Barnes Foundation

January 22–February 3, 1923

In the fall of 1922, Albert Barnes traveled to Paris to look for works of art to add to his growing collection in Merion. He settled on a significant number of pieces by Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Jacques Lipchitz, Chaim Soutine, Amedeo Modigliani, Jules Pascin, Odilon Redon, and Alexis Gritchenko, among others, as well as numerous African sculptures. Before shipping them to the United States, Paul Guillaume, the art dealer with whom Barnes worked most closely at this time, exhibited the majority of these new acquisitions at his gallery in Paris, to great fanfare.
