Passionate and precocious, Eugene Delacroix was born on this day in 1798 in a suburb of Paris, to a family rooted in the French Revolution. Equally revolutionary was his no-holds-barred painting style—riffing strongly off his Venetian idols—which made him a reluctant cause célèbre. Despite this ambiguity, and his lifelong delicate health, Delacroix was quickly established in the Romantic pantheon. The Barnes’s Delacroix in room 13 of the Collection Gallery is an oil study for a late mural masterpiece, the ceiling of the Chapel of the Holy Angels of the Church of Saint-Sulpice, Paris. “I have no love for reasonable painting,” Delacroix states in his journal, and the miasmic subject of “Saint Michael Defeats the Devil” may speak to this individualistic streak. 🎨 Eugene Delacroix. “Saint Michael Defeats the Devil,” probably 1850.

On Tues, April 24, members of The Goldenberg Group gave the Little Playhouse, located on the Playground, a much-needed makeover. They worked hard to rehab the interior of the playhouse with a new table, bench and shelving, as well as a new paint job! The volunteers also built and installed a giant, wood xylophone that will be the start of an "everyday item" music zone. The wonderful volunteers from the Goldenberg Group donated 60+ hours of labor. On behalf of all the children that visit Smith - thank you so much!

The way we see it, art goes beyond walls––it’s everywhere. In curating his collection, Dr. Albert Barnes gave us a fresh new lens to view not only art, but also the world. By arranging works according to color, light, line, and space, we’re invited to make unexpected and exciting connections between pieces from different eras, places, and cultures. Your perspective shifts: Colors seek synchrony. Diverse themes find unity. The effect is so inspiring, it stays with you––long after you’ve left our building. Come on in this spring! Discover why after every visit, you’ll never stop #seeingtheBarnes.

Did you know that we had over 50 volunteers that came on Saturday, for #ComcastCaresDay at Bache-Martin? They helped us spruce up our garden, getting it ready for Bache in Bloom Silent Auction and Raffle, they helped give our school a good spring cleaning, filling up a 40' dumpster, organized Ms. Pierce's closet, AND helped us enter more of our books into the library system (getting us closer to that opening goal). How amazing is that?! A huge THANK YOU to all these wonderful volunteers both from Comcast, and Friends of Bache-Martin; from the students, faculty, and parents!
