If you're interested in art, the magnificent
Barnes Foundation will stun you. It's housed in
the spacious French provincial mansion on the
famous Philadelphia "Main Line" on a narrow
lane filled with multimillion-dollar homes whose
residents jealously guard their privacy.
Dr. Barnes crammed his home with more than
1,000 masterpieces-ISO Renoirs, 50 Cezannes,
60 Matisses, and works by Picasso, Seurat,
Soutine, Modigliani, Rousseau, El Greco, Titian,
and Tintoretto, none of which can be reproduced
or loaned. The rather non-traditional style - floor
to ceiling art - in which the collection is hung,
has been fodder for much discussion in the art
world over the years.
