Overview

This book discusses the symbolism and imagery of one of our nation's most important cultural attractions, The Barnes Foundation, which contains 181 Renoirs, the largest cache of Cezannes in a single place, 46 Picassos, and the greatest American Matisse collection. The Book discusses how this place may be an important symbolic institution and American memorial about which we know very little. This book helps the reader to explore this thrilling place and to unlock its mysteries. Built in the early quarter of the 20th century The Barnes is the most important private collection of impressionist, postimpressionist and early modern art in the world. The book argues that The Barnes is a place of Remembrance for victims of America's labor struggle and the veterans of WWI. The author takes the reader through a story told completely in images about a time in American history that has shaped our understanding of ourselves as a world leader and which has set the tone of American leadership on the world stage ever since. The book argues that powerful entities are mistakenly dismantling this place without the full informed consent of the American people and it seeks to alter the course of what the authors believes is a poorly thought out decision regarding this special American place.
