Revel In Renoir!

If you are in the Philadelphia area and you haven't stopped at the Philadelphia Museum of Art to see the magnificent Renoir Landscapes exhibition you'd better hurry. This exhibition closes on January 8th
The lushness of Renoir is intoxicating. He pulls you into his ravishing artwork and with each painting you begin to feel almost as if you're watching a scene from a movie. This exhibition is the first to explore the inventiveness and importance of landscapes painted during the first decades of Renoir’s career. Approximately 60 paintings by Renoir, drawn from public and private collections in the United States and abroad, offer a fresh approach to the French Impressionist’s art
The audiotour (which is included with your ticket to the exhibition) is exceptionally well done.
I've already seen this exhibition twice and I find something new every time I visit. Remember: This is the exhibition's only stop in the US.
