The Barnes Foundation

The Barnes Foundation

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 C. Barnes called "the universal language of art." Immerse yourself in the greatest private collection of post-impressionist and early-modern art. Explore thousands of masterpieces, including 181 Renoirs, 69 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.

Called a "hidden treasure" by The Philadelphia Inquirer, the Barnes Arboretum, at our breathtaking 12-acre Merion campus, has over 3,000 plant species and an herbarium of more than 10,000 specimens.
