Happy Birthday to Pierre-Auguste Renoir, born on this day in 1841.
Did you know that with a 181 works by the celebrated French impressionist artist, the Barnes Foundation is home to the largest single collection of works by Renoir in the world?
Wandering through gallery after gallery at the Barnes, you can marvel at the vast collection of Renoir’s works while comparing Renoir’s styles, brush strokes and subjects with the works of Cezanne, Picasso, Matisse, Soutine and others who share wall space throughout this idiosyncratic but breathtaking collection.
One of the only ways to get untimed tickets to the Barnes Foundation is through the new With Art Philadelphia Hotel Package available at nine hotels. While package amenities vary from hotel to hotel, the biggest perk is going to be the untimed tickets to the Barnes.
