Between 1912 and 1951, Dr. Albert C. Barnes assembled one of the world’s most important holdings of post-Impressionist and early modern paintings. In this pursuit, he acquired 46 paintings and works on paper by Pablo Picasso. The collector largely acquired works dated before 1909. The Barnes Foundation holdings and the writings of Dr. Barnes suggest that he remained skeptical of later stylistic developments such as Cubism. Or did he? Judith Dolkart’s lecture in Remis Auditorium will be followed by a private reception in the MFA’s Trustees Room.

Please arrive at the Museum at least 20 minutes before the lecture begins.  Enter the public door of your choice and collect lecture tickets in your name at entrance ticket counters, at Sharf Visitor Center Members’ Desk, or at Remis Auditorium Box Office.
