Renoir Screening

Hope School of Fine Arts Auditorium (Room 015)

The gallery talk will be followed by a special screening of the new French historical drama Renoir (2013) about the last years of Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s life at Cagnes-sur-Mer during World War I. The filmmaker Gilles Bourdos even used the services of a convicted art forger, Guy Ribes, to create and re-create the Renoir paintings in live action on screen.

This program is co-sponsored by the Indiana University Art Museum and the Ryder Film Series.
