LACMA Pierre-Auguste Renoir Exhibit – Feb. 14 thru May 9

Renoir in the 20th Century

Renoir in the 20th Century focuses on the last thirty years of Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s career, and will be on display at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) from February 14 until May 9.  Following his departure with impressionism, Renoir focused on a style that was more decorative, classical, and informed by a highly personal interpretation of the Great Tradition.  Having never been studied and shown as they will be at LACMA, the paintings from this period are usually misunderstood because they do not fit comfortably into the history of high modernism.  Offering a unique look at the history of art, this incredible exhibition bridges the divide that exists in many people’s minds between nineteenth and twentieth century artistic styles.
