THE BARNES FOUNDATION PRESENTS ITS FIRST-EVER PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION

Established in 1922 by Albert C. Barnes, The Barnes Foundation holds one of the finest collections of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and early modern paintings. Its first photography exhibit is a collection of more than 170 vintage photographs that capture the spirit of France in the late 19th- and mid-20th century, a period of rapid transformation in every aspect of daily life. Live and Life Will Give You Pictures: Masterworks of French Photography, 1890–1950 features work by a range of photographers who experimented in their documentation of modern French life, including Berenice Abbott, Eugène Atget, Ilse Bing, Brassaï, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Edgar Degas, André Kertész, Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Dora Maar, and Man Ray.

Drawn from the private collection of Michael Mattis and Judy Hochberg, Live and Life Will Give You Pictures covers subjects of French life such as Paris and Environs, Street Life, Labor, Leisure, Commerce, Celebrity, Reportage, and Art for Art’s Sake.
