“Renoir: Father and Son/Painting and Cinema”
Photograph: Rene Burri

Either you love him or you hate him with the fire of a thousand suns, but the name Renoir tends to evoke strong emotions. That is, for Pierre-Auguste Renoir, at least. This show pins Renoir senior’s pastel-hued paintings with the black-and-white stills of his film director son, Jean Renoir, giving viewers a chance to reconsider their thoughts on the family name.
