Pierre-August Renoir: The Joys of Life

The Millburn Free Public Library is pleased to welcome Janet Mandel, award-winning art history educator, to the library on Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at 2:00 p.m., for a discussion of Renoir.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s philosophy can be summed up in this quote: “A picture must be an amiable thing, joyous and pretty—yes, pretty! There are enough troublesome things in life without inventing others.” Renoir’s joie de vivre made him one of the most beloved Impressionist painters. This talk will examine his 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.

The program is free to all and is appropriate for adults and anyone interested in Renoir. This event is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Millburn Library. The Millburn Library is located at 200 Glen Ave., Millburn, NJ 07041 and can be reached at 973-376-1006.
