"Modern British Novel" at the Barnes

Prof. Megan Quigley's "Modern British Novel" courses visited the Barnes Foundation at its new location downtown in Philadelphia on Saturday, Oct. 4th.  Seeing works by Matisse, Picasso, Soutine, Modigliani and many others helped to bring home the parallel stylistic experimentalism in fiction in the early twentieth-century.  What a great resource nearby!
