Marie Cuttoli: The Modern Thread from Miró to Man Ray
Opening February 23, “Marie Cuttoli: The Modern Thread from Miró to Man Ray” spotlights a pioneering female entrepreneur who convinced the most celebrated modern artists of her time––Picasso, Miró, Léger, and Man Ray––to create designs for the historic tapestry workshops of Aubusson, France. The show presents their paintings and drawings in that context, as "cartoons" or models made to produce woven works of art, just like this example showing Joan Miró’s “Rhythmic Figures” depicted first as oil on canvas and then as a tapestry using cotton and wool with silk. ➡ Tickets and tours at http://bit.ly/marie-cuttoli . . . ⚫ Joan Miró Rhythmic Figures (Personnages rythmiques), or Woman and Birds Woven in Aubusson, 1934 © Successió Miró / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York / ADAGP, Paris 2020
Exhibition curator, Cindy Kang, on Marie Cuttoli: The Modern Thread from Miró to Man Ray
You know Miró, Man Ray, and Picasso. Why have you never heard of Marie Cuttoli? Our curator Cindy Kang is about to change that with “Marie Cuttoli: The Modern Thread from Miró to Man Ray,” the first major exhibition dedicated to a pioneering female entrepreneur who revived the art of tapestry weaving for the modern era. As we get ready to open the show in the Roberts Gallery next Sunday, February 23, Cindy takes us through the collection galleries to rediscover Picasso, Miró, and Roault––names typically associated with paintings––as artists who also experimented with textile design because of #MarieCuttoli. Watch the video to learn more about the show, including its connection with Dr. Albert Barnes who recognized and advocated for Cuttoli’s influential role in the history of modern art. ➡ Learn more: http://bit.ly/marie-cuttoli

Paul Cézanne The Large Bathers
Happy birthday to Paul Cézanne born on this day in 1839 in the town of Aix-en-Provence in France. Thanks to a generous grant from the Bank of America, the Barnes’s painting conservators were able to study and treat the Barnes’s “Large Bathers,” one of three versions of the painting that were to occupy him so deeply during the last ten years of his life. At the time of his death in 1906, Cézanne was almost entirely unknown by the general public. Albert C. Barnes was one of the first American collectors to understand Cézanne’s importance to the history of European art. “Large Bathers” was installed in a place of prominence in the Main Room of the Collection Gallery after its purchase in 1933. Here’s a look back at this major one-year project from gallery deinstallation and lab work to its exciting comeback this December. Next time you are #seeingtheBarnes look for this work in the Main Gallery and try our new mobile guide Barnes Focus to learn more about this painting. No download required. Just open barnesfoc.us on your mobile device and point your smartphone camera on the artwork. 🎨 Paul Cézanne. The Large Bathers, 1895–1906 . . . Photography and video by Michael Perez

Cézanne’s “The Large Bathers,” back on view in our Main Gallery
Today marks a major Cézanne masterpiece returning to its pride of place in the Barnes collection! After a year-long conservation project that centered on Paul Cézanne’s “The Large Bathers,” we are thrilled to share that visitors can once again marvel at this important painting, which is back on view on the east wall of our Main Gallery. Barbara Buckley, Senior Director of Conservation and Chief Conservator of Paintings shared her team’s findings recently with the Philadelphia Inquirer. In addition to the conservation treatment, the conservators and conservation scientists studied the materials of the painting through technical analysis. Buckley explained that one of the goals of the project was to “come to a better understanding of the materials Cézanne used in making the painting.” Some of the testing revealed Cézanne’s liberal use of emerald green across the canvas. Conservator of Paintings Anya Shutov remarked: “There’s tons of it everywhere!” Shutov noted that he uses it not just for the color green, but to adjust colors like vermilion, which is a really bright red. Cézanne used emerald green to tone the vermilion down to make brown. Look for this milestone in the history of art next time you’re #seeingtheBarnes. With extended hours this holiday season, there’s more time to explore the collection with your favorite art lovers. Major conservation work of Cézanne’s “The Large Bathers” was made possible by a grant from Bank of America.

Art Conservation: The Large Bathers by Paul Cezanne
Major conservation work around Cézanne’s “The Large Bathers” continues thanks to a grant from Bank of America. Painting conservators, Barbara Buckley and Anya Shutov share the latest update from our conservation lab––this time, with x-ray vision. Paul Cézanne worked on the monumental “The Large Bathers” for nearly 11 years, from 1895 until his death in 1906. Over the years, he made substantial changes to the composition. One example is the figure of the left bather, which was significantly reduced in size. We know this because we can see the original layout of the figure from an x-ray of the painting. Note how it used to be closer to the viewer’s space, with its right foot reaching the lower edge of canvas and its head extending higher into the trees. Cézanne likely made these changes to balance out his composition and place the left bather on the same plane as other figures. The painting is scheduled to be reinstalled back in the our main collection gallery this fall. Until then, stay tuned as we share more news around the progress of this major technical study throughout the next few months!
Pat Steir - Moore College of Art 2015 Visionary Woman Award Recipient
“You might make art that’s ahead of its time, behind its time, or it has nothing to do with the moment at all, and it will be hard for people to see it. But if you have to make art every day, if that’s what you have to do, do it.” ––Pat Steir It’s #Womenshistorymonth. Proud to join National Museum of Women in the Arts in spotlighting #5womenartists all throughout March. Internationally renowned painter and printmaker Pat Steir has been exhibiting her paintings and site-specific wall drawings worldwide for over five decades. In the late 1980s she created her first Waterfall images utilizing her pioneering process of conceptual painting: Steir pours or brushes thinned oil paint onto the upper register of a canvas, allowing gravity and the viscosity of the paint to determine the form of the image. Next time you’re #seeingtheBarnes look for Steir’s “Silent Secret Waterfalls: The Barnes Series,” on view in the Annenberg Court. Thank you to Moore College of Art & Design for this clip. Steir was the 2015 recipient of the Moore College of Art & Design for the Visionary Woman Awards, the annual scholarship fundraising gala honoring outstanding women leaders in art and design.
Last night’s #FirstFriday at the Barnes was filled with the stellar sounds of Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra. Artistic Director Jeri Lynne Johnson made history as the the first African American woman to win an international conducting award. Founded in Philadelphia, Black Pearl was created to be a model for 21st-century American Orchestra. Johnson believes that diversity, equity, and inclusion are not special projects but at the orchestra’s DNA. Missed last night’s performance?

NOW ON VIEW: “From Today, Painting is Dead: #EarlyPhotography from Britain and France with nearly 250 iconic images by 60 innovators. Tickets & tours: http://bit.ly/early-photography Following the production of the first photographs in the 1830s and before the advent of Kodak’s point-and-shoot camera in 1888, artists experimented with photography, creating bold, innovative processes. Who were these early adopters of the new technology? How did they embrace and challenge traditions around painting, the long-dominant medium for capturing images? The answers lie in how the show is organized––by painting’s official categories, offering a lens for seeing early photography in a new light. 🔍 Tip: Look for these themes reflecting painting’s official hierarchy: History, Portraiture Genre (scenes of daily life), Landscape, and Still life. Discover how photography’s early adopters inevitably absorbed—and transformed—the well-established tropes of the dominant academic painting tradition. Want to know more about each theme? Follow along––we’ll be exploring each one in the next few weeks.
From Today, Painting Is Dead: Early Photography in Britain and France
“From today, painting is dead!” A phrase overheard from influential French painter Paul Delaroche after he saw a photograph for the very first time. Far-fetched story? Maybe. But it captures the anxieties that surrounded this invention when it first emerged in the mid-19th century, especially in London and Paris. Who were these “early adopters” of new technology?
