Renoir: Reviled and Revered
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Cinema screening of live performance.Renoir is known and loved for his impressionist paintings. But Renoir himself grew tired of this style and radically changed course. This film examines the new direction he took and why it provokes such extreme reactions even today. Some claim they are repulsed by Renoir's late works and others are seduced. Matisse and Picasso thought him a genius. Granted unrestricted access to this unique collection and the world's experts, plus Renoir's homes in France, this film allows viewers to decide for themselves.
