About the Tour

Each month, Spotlight Tours focus on a different artist or theme, allowing for a deeper dive into specific areas of the collection.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir loved painting the women in his life. His wife, lovers, and friends regularly 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. This tour spotlights how Renoir represented different ideals of femininity and considers how his paintings of women hold up today.

Includes access to the collection before and after the tour.
