        An Ensemble of Collectors

        Dr. Barnes worked with several art dealers to buy paintings for his collection. These dealers contributed to Dr. Barnes' knowledge and appreciation of art. While the doctor had strong relationships with some of these men, he also argued with some of them, which affected how he was able to purchase artwork.  This video, an excerpt from “The Barnes Collection,” describes how Dr. Barnes began his art collection, and details his relationships with dealers including Durand-Ruel, Ambroise Vollard, and Paul Guillaume.
