The ArT of The STeAl
Don Argott’s engrossing documentary examines the struggle to control the Barnes Foundation and its peerless paintings, valued in the billions of dollars. Among the players are the cantankerous tycoon who built the collection, questionable philanthropists who want to control it, and Pennsylvania politicians who use it as a steppingstone. This opinionated film tells only one side of the story, but it tells it in spellbinding fashion and leaves viewers pondering big issues about art, greed, and legacy. Not rated. 101 minutes. The Screen, Santa Fe. ( James M. Keller) See story, Page 46.
