"Could [Jean Renoir] not see that he had done so much more than imitate, that he had transformed his medium in ways even more profound than the elder Renoir did his?" @nytimes Jean Renoir acknowledged that he could not escape his father's influence. The Times, which calls the exhibition "terrific and heartfelt," reveals there's more to it than mere imitation. 🔎 As you explore the show, think about a father figure in your life. How has he influenced your perspective and practice? #DadandMe ✒ Book tickets: http://bit.ly/Renoir-Father-Son 🔗 Read the review: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/30/arts/design/renoir-father-and-son-painting-and-cinema-review-barnes-foundation.html

Roger de La Fresnaye was born this day in 1885. Growing up in Le Mans and receiving his art education in Paris, de La Fresnaye was later a member of the Section d’Or artist group from 1912 to 1914. Along with his compatriots, he transformed the cubism of Picasso and Braque into something more coloristic and lyrical, doing much to popularize the movement prior to World War I. After contracting tuberculosis during his wartime service, his health began a steady decline, leading to an early death in 1925 at the age of 40. In his final years, he turned away from the avant-garde and became an influential advocate of traditional realism. #SeeingtheBarnes 🎨 Roger de La Fresnaye. “Married Life,” 1913

“What if it rained that day? What if I had no available safe place because the Rec had to turn us away? What path would I be on right now?" –Read about Donte Mills' call for a new Hunting Park Recreation Center in PlanPhilly!

    What if it rained? How a rec center changed one life, and could change more
    Every time it rains, the Hunting Park Recreation Center has to shut down activities because of a hole in the roof. The "Rec" is a safe place where many children in the Hunting Park community in Philadelphia go to discover, expand, grow, relate, and mature. All that is taken away every time it rains.

Happy birthday to Giorgio de Chirico, born on this day in 1888! Dr. Albert Barnes was an avid supporter of de Chirico, asserting that “Chirico is perhaps the most original of contemporary painters in the individuality of the creative use he makes of the essentials of the great traditions of painting.” His appreciation for de Chirico’s work prompted Barnes to purchase 13 works by the artist for his collection. The relationship between the two resulted in this 1926 portrait of Dr. Barnes. On your next visit, look for it just outside the entrance to the collection gallery. #SeeingtheBarnes 🎨 Giorgio de Chirico. “Dr. Albert C. Barnes,” 1926
