Yinka Shonibare MBE: Magic Ladders, January 24-April 21, 2014:
The Barnes Foundation houses one of the finest collections of 19th- and 20th-century French painting in the world. An extraordinary number of masterpieces by Renoir and Matisse provide a perspective on them that is unavailable anywhere else. Publications that explore the highlights of the collection—and Renoir and Matisse in depth—will be available in 2012 and 2013, providing scholars and the public with breathtaking images and insight into the artists and the collector.
