About the Tour
Each month, our Spotlight Tour focuses on a different artist or theme, allowing for a deeper dive into specific areas of the collection.
April is devoted to American artists. Nearly a quarter of all the paintings collected by Albert Barnes were created by Americans, among them William Glackens, Marsden Hartley, Charles Demuth, and Charles and Maurice Prendergast. Learn about Dr. Barnes’s relationship with these artists, and why his collection of European modernism was so important to their creative development.
After the tour, you’re invited to explore the collection galleries.
