Barnes Foundation

This art gallery possesses more than 2500 objects, including 800 paintings estimated to be worth more than $2 billion.

The Barnes Foundation was established in 1922 to "promote the advancement of education and the appreciation of fine arts." Located in a twelve-acre arboretum, the Foundation is home to one of the world's largest Impressionist, Post-Imprressionist, and Early Modernist paintings, with extensive holdings by Picasso, Matisse, Cezanne, Renoir, and Modigliani.

We hope you enjoy our work.
