Presented by Helga Aurisch, curator of European art.
Although Sterling Clark loved the work of many French Impressionists, his special passion was Pierre-Auguste Renoir, whom he considered one of the greatest painters of all time—on a par with the great masters of the Renaissance. Clark avidly collected Renoir, amassing 39 works including portraits, still lifes, landscapes, and genre scenes, concentrating his collecting on paintings created when Renoir was at the height of his career.
Helga Aurisch explores the 20 works by Renoir on view in The Age of Impressionism: Great French Paintings from the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, placing them in the context of the artist's career. Questions about the content of this lecture? E-mail email@example.com
