The Barnes Foundation

Located on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the long avenue lying in the heart of Philadelphia, the Barnes Foundation is a neoclassical setting housing an exceptional collection of impressionist and post-impressionist art. This includes no fewer than 181 canvases by Auguste Renoir, 11 by Edgar Degas and 7 by Vincent Van Gogh which mix harmoniously with African and Asian artworks. All of these valuable works belonged to pharmacist Alfred C. Barnes, an eminent private collector. Do go through the gallery to see Henri Matisse’s mural triptych The Dance II which the painter created in 1932 at the request of this discriminating connoisseur.
