Pierre-Auguste Renoir is known and loved for his impressionist paintings of Paris. These paintings count among the world’s favorites. Renoir, however, grew tired of this style and changed course. This film – based on the remarkable collection of 181 Renoirs at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia – examines the direction he then took & why it provokes such extreme reactions right up to today. Some claim they are repulsed by Renoir’s later works & some claim they are seduced. What may surprise many is that among the many artists who sought Renoir’s new works out & were clearly highly influenced by them were the two giants of the 20th century – Picasso and Matisse.
