Art Lovers Book Club: Jean Renoir, Renoir, My Father


Thursday, March 19, 4:00 pm: Jean Renoir, Renoir, My Father
In this delightful memoir, Jean Renoir, the director of such masterpieces of the cinema as Grand Illusion and The Rules of the Game, tells the life story of his father, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, the great Impressionist painter. Recounting Pierre-Auguste's extraordinary career, beginning as a painter of fans and porcelain, recording the rules of thumb by which he worked, and capturing his unpretentious and wonderfully engaging talk and personality, Jean Renoir's book is a wonderful double portrait of father and son.


Hosts for this Event:
