The Company of Collectors

After 90 years, the Barnes collection is still singular among art collections. Albert Barnes was not alone, however, in assembling an excellent collection or in engaging modernism. At this talk, the Bernard C. Watson Director of Education Blake Bradford explores Dr. Barnes's accomplishments alongside those of his collecting peers, including Katherine Dreier, Isabella Stewart Gardner, and Duncan Phillips.
