Pierre Auguste Renoir: painting the joys of life

Pierre Auguste Renoir: Painting the Joys of Life--a talk by Janet Mandel

Pierre-Auguste Renoir, along with several other painters who saw the world in a radical way, turned the Parisian art world of the 19th Century on its head. These artists rejected the conventions of academic art and wanted instead to capture the immediacy and vitality of modern life.

 

Renoir's joie de vivre made him one of the most beloved of these Impressionist painters and a talk on him and his art creations will be held at the library on Monday June 11 at 7 pm.

The presenter is Janet Mandel, now retired after teaching for 32 years in NJ’s public schools, the last eighteen of which were at Columbia High School in Maplewood, where she taught English, art history, and World Languages and Cultures.

In October of 2003 she was named runner-up for the New Jersey Council for the Humanities (NJCH) Teacher of the Year award and was formally recognized by the New Jersey State Legislature and Governor Codey for this achievement. In May of 2004 she was the recipient of the “Innovations in Special Education Award” from the New Jersey School Boards Association (NJSBA) and the Association of Schools and Agencies for the Handicapped (ASAH).

Janet lives in West Orange with her husband Ken and has been  presenting illustrated lectures on a variety of art history topics at museums, adult schools, libraries, senior centers, and similar venues.

Janet’s talk will examine Renoir’s long and productive life, his voluptuous nudes, luxurious flowers, pretty children, bustling Parisian streets, and sunny outdoor scenes that are full of people and fun.

Archana Chiplunkar, Librarian, who arranged this program,  says “this will be a good complement to the exhibit on Renoir currently on at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia (till Sept 3) entitled: “Renoir: Father and Son/Painting and Cinema in case you are planning to visit””  This show which explores the works of acclaimed director Jean Renoir and the influence of his father, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, on his art and life is on till Sept 3.

Dr. Albert Barnes assembled what is now considered one of the world's greatest collections of impressionist, post-impressionist, and modern European paintings, including 181 of Renoir’s works.

The program is free and open to all.  No registration is needed.
