The Barnes Foundation
A $6 billion collection of art masterpieces is housed in a neighborhood hostile to the traffic it attracts, limiting its hours of operation and its ability to support itself. The Barnes Foundation is nearly bankrupt and facing a court decision about moving to Philadelphia's City Center. But the founder's will prohibits such a move and art aficionados are aligned against it. A conversation about who really owns the world's great art treasures with John Anderson, author of Art Held Hostage
, the book which covers the Barnes Foundation-s legal battles, Los Angeles Times' art critic Christopher Knight and Chris Satullo, Editorial Page editor of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
