Notes & Reviews:
Pierre Auguste Renoir is known and loved for his impressionist paintings of Paris which rank among the world's favourites. Renoir, however, grew tired of this style and changed course. This stunning film - based on the remarkable Renoir collection at Philadelphia's Barnes Foundation - explores the artist's new approach. These later works still provoke extreme reactions - some people are repulsed by them and others seduced. Two 20th century titans - Picasso and Matisse - are intriguingly among the many artists who were clearly influenced by Renoir's later direction. This film is a new biography of an artistic giant - Renoir - but also uncovers an untold story that identifies him as a significant link between the art world's old order and the new.Notes & Reviews:
