Renoir: Father and Son

Sold Out


This publication shows the rich and fascinating dialogue between the painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir and his son, filmmaker Jean Renoir. It retraces chapters of Jean’s production through the lens of his father’s work. And while Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s artistic practice and creative universe influenced Jean’s art, Jean’s films shed new light on his father’s paintings. Focusing on core themes in both artists’ works, such as their vision and recreation of Paris, this volume examines Jean’s path to becoming a prominent international filmmaker, bringing together paintings, drawings, films, costumes, and photos, as well as the ceramics he made before he turned to cinema. Orson Welles described filmmaker Jean Renoir (1894–1979), son of renowned impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir, as “the greatest of all directors.” Father and son shared muses, motifs, palettes, and a deep sense of place.
