About the Tour

Each month, Spotlight Tours focus on a different artist or theme, allowing for a deeper dive into specific areas of the collection.

Join us in September for a closer look at Vincent van Gogh, who arrived in Paris at a time when many young artists were eager to move beyond impressionism. Tour the Barnes collection and trace the work of Van Gogh and this generation of avant-garde painters, including Paul Gauguin, Paul Signac, Georges Seurat, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. See how these artists created highly personal interpretations of reality, pushed the boundaries of expressionistic color and form, and redefined modern art.

Before and after the tour, you’re invited to explore the collection.
