Metalwork Tattoos, 2 pgs

$ 7.95


Dr. Barne's 1936 visit to the metalwork collection of the Musee Le Secq des Tournelles, Rouen, France, inspired him to integrate wrought iron into the unique ensemble arrangements of his art collection.  The Barnes collection's decorative metalwork underscores the lines and compositional details of the paintings hanging nearby.  Dr. Barne's subversive juxtaposition of wrought iron and paintings reflects his democratic principles and his belief that a blacksmith is "just as authentic an artist as a Titian, Cezanne, or Renoir."

Contains 12 temporary tattoos on two sheets, with instructions.
