Renowned Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir left a vibrant legacy that influenced the life and films of his son, the acclaimed director Jean Renoir.
This book 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.
