American Paintings and Works on Paper in the Barnes Foundation by Richard J. Wattenmaker
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Barnes Foundation is renowned for its stellar collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and Early Modern paintings. Less well known, however, is that it also houses superb examples of 20th-century American art, including important paintings and works on paper by William J. Glackens, Maurice and Charles Prendergast, Charles Demuth, Alfred H. Maurer, Ernest Lawson, Horace Pippin, Marsden Hartley, Jules Pascin, and many others. Featuring 400 color illustrations, this extraordinary catalogue offers the long overdue opportunity to explore this exceptional collection of American art. Essays on the major artists featured in the Barnes Foundation are included, along with an essay on Dr. Barnes's role as a collector of modern American art works and a study of the development of the Foundation's important educational programs.
