Barnes Foundation

During our trip to Philly last month we paid a visit to the Barnes Foundation. This was such a wonderful museum and I highly recommend stopping in if you're sightseeing in the city. I was very impressed with all the hard work and dedication which went into recreating the original Barnes building in Lower Merion. Of course there was a huge controversy surrounding their move to Logan Square in 2012, but let's not get into that. In any rate, I'm happy that these works from the Barnes Foundation are available for the public to enjoy and will remain as such for many years to come.

Special shout out to our friend who gave us a special tour of the collection!

As this was my first visit to the museum, I found the sheer number of works on display almost overwhelming, and in lieu of writing down those paintings which captured by interest, I used their catalogue online to find said pieces. It occurred to me that some of the works listed below might not have actually been on display, or at least I don't recall seeing them, so apologies in advance. I especially enjoyed the works by Ernest Lawson, Maurice Utrillo, William James Glackens, and Maurice Brazil Prendergast.
