Renoir: Intimacy

On the occasion of the exhibition dedicated to Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Bilbao Fine Artas Museum organizes a cycle of cinema classics that have something to say about the painter and his time.

Renoir: Intimacy is the first retrospective exhibition in Spain to be devoted to the French Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir (Limoges, 1841-Cagnes-sur-Mer, 1919). It was shown at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid last autumn, curated by its artistic director Guillermo Solana, and is now on display at the Bilbao Fine Arts Museum until 15 May thanks to the sponsorship of BBK.

In Bilbao the exhibition comprises 64 works loaned by museums and private collections world-wide, including the Musée Marmottan Monet and the Musée Picasso in Paris, the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Gallery, London, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza itself.
