Nature morte au crane, (detail) by Paul Cézanne, 1896-98

Drawing on what is considered one of the greatest post-impressionist and early modern art collections in the world, Barnes Foundation educator Penny Hansen guides a series of live virtual tours that examine in depth the paintings of three artists who helped shape a truly revolutionary period in the history of art.

Using high-definition Deep Zoom technology developed by the Barnes, she leads participants through the Philadelphia museum’s galleries and provides astonishingly close-up views of the canvases, revealing their paint surface, brushstrokes, and details in ways that bring the art and the artist vividly to life. All programs provide the chance to interact with Hansen in a Q&A session.

Session Information


The Barnes Foundation holds the world’s largest collection of works by Paul Cézanne, some 69 pieces including his masterworks The Large Bathers and The Card Players. Picasso spoke for a generation in declaring, “Cézanne is the father of us all: Without Cézanne there would be no modern art.” Hansen explores Cézanne’s career, his reclusive life, his style, his characteristic brushstrokes, and his deep influence on 20th-century art.
