Barnes From Home

"I have loved ALL the Takeouts and look forward to the time when we are released from this lockdown and allowed to visit this glorious collection in person. In the meantime, learning more detail about each work is absolutely fascinating!" 
––Janice F. on YouTube

To all of you who continue to get your daily servings of art, our hearts are full thanks to your encouraging comments and feedback!  

In today’s Barnes Takeout, take a break with these dancers by Degas. Martha Lucy, our deputy director for research, interpretation and education, explores the artist's fascination with ballerinas and life behind the stage curtain.
