Renoir: Father and Son/Painting and Cinema

Premiering May 6, 2018, at the Barnes Foundation — home to the world’s largest collection of paintings by Pierre-Auguste Renoir — is a major exhibition examining the artistic exchange between the renowned impressionist painter and his son, celebrated filmmaker Jean Renoir. Renoir: Father and Son/Painting and Cinema brings together over 120 works, including paintings, drawings, ceramics, films, costumes, photographs, and posters — many never before shown in the U.S. — for an illuminating exploration of Pierre-Auguste’s role in his son’s oeuvre and the relationship between painting and cinema.

The exhibition is curated by Sylvie Patry, Consulting Curator at the Barnes and Chief Curator/Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs and Collections at the Musée d’Orsay, and is organized in collaboration with the Musées d’Orsay and de l’Orangerie, and with the participation of La Cinémathèque française.
