Barnes Collection: Paintings- and more
Posted on Friday, May 04, 2012
While the Barnes Foundation is best known for impressionist, post-impressionist and early modernist paintings, displayed with them are things that often surprise and bewilder those new to the galleries - Pennsylvania German chairs, chests, and redware, iron keys and door hinges; paintings by old masters and new Americans; cases full of African masks and sculptures, American Indian jewelry and textiles.
