The Barnes Foundation

One of the great treasures just a mile or so from my present studio in Bala Cynwyd is the Barnes Foundation. Soon, amid great controversy, it is scheduled to move to downtown Philadelphia. This is the last year in which to see this amazing and vast collection of French masterpieces by Renoir, Cezanne, Monet, and many more in their original setting. I find it hard to imagine that the experience of visiting it as it is now, surrounded by gardens in a neighborhood of mansions, can be replicated.
