Philadelphia’s Newest Museum – The Barnes Foundation

More in: , Pennsylvania
The Barnes Foundation’s recent relocation to Philadelphia has created great controversy as well as a great excuse to view the collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and early Modern art of Dr. Albert C. Barnes. Dr. Barnes, also known as the creator of the antiseptic Argyrol, worked his entire life to acquire a massive art collection, including works by CézannePicasso, Matisse and van Gogh, to name a few. Despite his will’s explicit instructions to keep his collection in Merion, PA, the recent re-opening of the Foundation in Philadelphia has established a fresh and fantastic atmosphere to view his art, all while persevering the style and groupings that Dr. Barnes had originally conceived.
