Renoir: The Body,
The Senses

Opens June 8, 2019
Over the course of his long career, Pierre-Auguste Renoir continually turned to the human figure for artistic inspiration. In recognition of the centenary of Renoir’s death, the Clark Art Institute and the Kimbell Art Museum present Renoir: The Body, The Senses. This daring exhibition is the first major exploration of Renoir’s unceasing interest in the human form, and it reconsiders Renoir as a constantly evolving artist whose style moved from Realism into luminous Impressionism, culminating in the modern classicism of his last decades.
