For thirty years, the art collection of pharmaceutical tycoon Albert C. Barnes was a unique gem in the city of Philadelphia -- an assemblage of works acquired solely for the enjoyment of its owner, who regularly eschewed the pretensions of high-art society. The Barnes collection was its own self-contained foundation and, per its founder, was not to be shared or sold, and only to be exhibited to true art enthusiasts. After Barnes' death, what followed was an unfortunate farrago of mismanagement, politics,greed, and well-meaning mistakes. This 2009 documentary explores what went wrong and where the collection, estimated to be worth billions, stands today.
