Albert Barnes

Horace Pippin: Changing Perceptions panel discussion

In the late 1930s, self-taught artist Horace Pippin rose from obscurity to critical acclaim. Championed initially by artist
N. C. Wyeth and critic Christian Brinton, Pippin was soon supported by Albert C. Barnes, Museum of Modern Art director Alfred Barr, and curator Holger Cahill, all of whom described Pippin’s art as “primitive,” “folk,” and “naïve,” and helped launch him into the mainstream art world. Join Audrey Lewis, associate curator at the Brandywine River Museum, who curated the first major exhibition of Pippin’s art in over two decades; Martha Lucy, consulting curator at the Barnes Foundation; and Lynne Cooke, senior curator of special projects in modern art at the National Gallery of Art, for a dynamic conversation about perceptions of Pippin, the reception of his work during his lifetime, and his legacy in American art.
