Description

Art in September: Let Hot Docs be your refuge for art for art’s sake.

In this unique look at Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s late career, step inside the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia where a collection of 181 Renoir paintings will likely never travel from. Featuring his nudes painted after he turned away from impressionism, the merit of these works are the subject of a hot debate in the art world. Are they sexist? Just plain bad? Or are they more brilliant works from one of history’s greatest artists that are simply misunderstood. Hear those on both sides factor in and decide for yourself in this insightful doc that also looks at Renoir’s influence on the next generation.
