Pierre-Auguste Renoir is known and loved for his impressionist paintings of Paris, among the world’s favourites of the French capital. Over the years, however Renoir grew tired of this style and changed course.
This stunning film – based upon 181 Renoir paintings from at the collection of Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia – examines the new direction he then took and why it provokes such extreme reactions right up to today. Some claim they are repulsed by Renoir’s later works and some claim they are seduced by them. What may surprise many is that among the many artists who were influenced by Renoir’s works were the two giants of the 20th century – Picasso and Matisse.
The film is a fresh new biography of this artistic giant but more than this, it uncovers a rarely told story that places Renoir as a critical link between the old and the new.
