Les Barnesiennes: the Women of the Barnes Foundation

Dr. Barnes surrounded himself with a diverse staff, many of whom were women hired over a decade before American women were granted suffrage. They were secretaries, instructors, authors, editors, and members of the board. Some remained loyal employees throughout their lives, even assembling their own extensive collections of art and antiques.
