Renoir

Renoir's greatest fame came from his association with the French Impressionist painters of the later nineteenth century. The Impressionists captured their immediate surroundings in richly colored, fluently sketched canvases often executed out of doors rather than in the studio. But Renoir's long career encompassed a wide range of styles and there is a world of difference between the ambitious subject pictures he painted in the 1860s and the glowing nudes that he produced in the final years before his death in 1919. This video explores the full range of Renoir's extraordinary talent through detailed photography and an illuminating script by John House, one of the selectors of the Renoir exhibition seen in London, Paris and Boston.
