Scope and Content Note

In 1995, eighty masterpieces from the Barnes Foundation were selected for a traveling exhibition that completed its tour at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The exhibition, "From Cézanne to Matisse: Great French Paintings from the Barnes Foundation," was organized by the Barnes Foundation and curated by Joseph Rishel and Christopher Riopelle. This travelling exhibition was the first and only time that the works were on view outside the Barnes galleries, located in Merion, PA. The records include object files, installation files, and administrative files. While the majority of the files are undated, the remaining records are from 1992 to 1994.
