After 90 years, the Barnes Foundation's collection continues to be a singular experience. However Albert Barnes was not alone in amassing an excellent art collection or in engaging modernism. Explore Barnes's accomplishments alongside those of Katherine Dreier, Claribel and Etta Cone, Isabella Stewart Gardner, Duncan Phillips, and other of his peers. This course will offer a timeline for what was being collected by Barnes's contemporaries, both individual and institutional. Students will also be able to consider the artists and works that didn't enter the collection.
