Overview

The only full-scale biography of Albert Coombs Barnes, one of the most controversial, colorful figures in the twentieth-century American art world, this book recounts how he amassed a fortune that brought to a Philadelphia suburb the premier private collection of works by such masters as Renoir, Matisse, Cezanne, and Picasso—all the while thumbing his nose at the art establishment.
