Summary
Beloved Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir left a vibrant legacy that influenced the life and films of his son, the acclaimed director Jean Renoir. The Impressionist paintings of Pierre-Auguste Renoir are characterized by portraits and lively episodes from daily life. These joyful scenes influenced the life and work of his son, filmmaker Jean Renoir, who Orson Welles described as "the greatest of all directors." This catalogue--and the traveling exhibition it accompanies--demonstrates how Pierre-Auguste Renoir's artistic practice and creative universe influenced Jean's art, and how Jean's films shed new light on his father's paintings. Focusing on leitmotifs in both artists' works, this volume commingles paintings, drawings, films, costumes, photographs, and ceramics. Contributions from the Barnes Foundation, the Musée d'Orsay, and the Cinémathèque Française provide in-depth insight.
