RENOIR: REVERED AND REVILED

Thursday 21 February

Two screenings 11am & 3pm

Each screening lasts approx 2 hrs


Known and loved for his impressionist paintings of Paris, the work of Pierre-Auguste is world-renowned. Renoir,however, grew tired of this style and changed course. This stunning film – based on the remarkable collection of 181 Renoirs at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia – examines the direction he then took and why it provokes such extreme reactions right up to today. Some claim they are repulsed by Renoir’s later works and some claim they are seduced.

What may surprise many is that among the many artists who sought Renoir’s new works out and were clearly highly influenced by them were the two giants of the 20th century – Picasso and Matisse. The film is a fresh new biography of this artistic giant but more than that it uncovers a rarely told story that places Renoir as a critical link between the old and the new.

Written and Directed by Phil Grabsky, this is a great film for art lovers and art students aged 15+.
