The Barnes Foundation added 4 new photos.

Do you like to wear hats? One of the oldest fashion accessories, hats can be a fashion statement, protect us from the weather, or denote social and religious status. Millinery shops were abundant at the turn of the twentieth century and provided customers with hats hand-decorated with a range of styles and materials from extravagant silk ribbons and exotic feathers to plain felt or straw. #LOOKSLOWLY on your next Barnes visit and note all the works that include hats! #Renoir, #VanGogh, #Cézanne, and #Glackens painted them as part of their portraits––hats revealed a little something about the sitter. Which of these hats speaks to you? Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Girl with Pink Bonnet (Jeune fille au chapeau rose), 1894 Vincent van Gogh. The Smoker (Le Fumeur), 1888 Paul Cézanne. Leaning Smoker (Fumeur accoudé), 1890–1891 William Glackens, Girl in Green Turban, c. 1913

    The Most Dangerous Things You Can See in Museums
    There are a lot of kinds of danger. Some threats are loud and obvious, others are covert and subtle. Some are immediate, others take months, years, or centuries to develop.
