About the Talk

Pierre-Auguste Renoir occupies the strange position of being one of the most beloved artists of all time yet also one of the most reviled. Martha Lucy, author of Renoir in the Barnes Foundation, discusses Renoir’s reputation during the time Dr. Barnes was collecting and proposes several reasons for our discomfort with his paintings 100 years later.
