Summary "It's been called the greatest theft of art since the Second World War. Founded in 1922 by wealthy American drug developer and art collector Albert C. Barnes, the Barnes Foundation became the finest collection of paintings by Renoir, Cezanne, Matisse, Van Gogh and other masters. The Barnes Foundation was envisioned by Barnes as an art school, not a public museum, but ever since Barnes' death in 1951, the fight over its future has been underway. On one side are the artists, historians and lawyers defending Barnes' wish that the entire collection (valued at over $25 billion) never be moved, loaned or sold; and on the other side, the politicians, hugh charitable trusts, tourism boards and rich socialites pushing to relocate it to downtown Philadelphia"--Container.
