This lavishly illustrated book offers a room-by-room tour of the Barnes Foundation, with concise entries on 172 works in the collection ranging from important paintings by Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cézanne, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Henri Matisse, and others, to metalwork, ceramics, textiles, furniture, and sculptures from Africa, Asia, and North America. An introduction and an essay on Dr. Albert Barnes's unique approach to displaying works of art place these objects in the larger context of the Barnes Foundation and its educational mission.
