ABOUT The Barnes Foundation

The world-renowned collection encompasses more than 3,000 masterpieces, including the 180 Renoirs, 68 Cézannes, 59 Matisses, 46 Picassos, 16 Modiglianis, and 7 Van Goghs, plus textiles, metalwork, decorative objects, African sculpture, Native American ceramics and jewelry, and Pennsylvania German furniture.

Art for all:
There is nowhere else like the Barnes. While most collections are grouped by chronology, style, or genre, art at the Barnes is arranged in ensembles structured according to light, line, color, and space–principles that founder Albert Barnes called “the universal language of art.”

Curate your own experience:
Imagination is all you need to have a transformative experience at the Barnes. Find out what speaks to you. There’s something for art- and nature-loverts of all ages!

Family programs stir the imagination and generate excitement about art, architecture, and nature. Programs are designed for preschoolers (ARTime), youth (ArtKids), and the entire family (ArtSee); children must be accompanied by an adult.
