Description: Born in Philadelphia, John Pierce Barnes (1893-1954) created a relatively small but competent body of work in several styles, but is best known for his pointillist and impressionist oil paintings of portraits and landscapes. The vibrant pastels in this exhibition were created by Barnes in the 1920s in the Pennsylvania counties of Bucks, Delaware and Chester. Barnes was an award-winning student of Daniel Garber (1880-1958). Barnes is credited with designing the General Electric logo still in use today. This exhibition was curated by Kathryn Scimone Stanko.
