About the Tour
Each month, our Spotlight Tours focus on a different artist or theme, allowing for a deeper dive into specific areas of the collection.
Throughout his life, Pierre-Auguste Renoir surrounded himself with women. His wife, lovers, and friends often found their way onto his canvases. These models, muses, and partners provided the artist with a continual source of inspiration, and they became the center of the artistic worlds he constructed over his long career.
Before and after the tour, you’re invited to explore the collection galleries.
Find out more about the women in Renoir’s life and their influence on his art.
