glass man from Amelie finally finished with Renoir
Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841–1919)
Luncheon of the Boating Party, 1880–81
The Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C.
Renoir's Luncheon of the Boating Party is back at the Phillips. It's worth the visit this weekend when A Celebration of Masterworks is free to the public.
Hung in the second floor of the original Phillips house, the work is weirdly set off by a beige paintjob but whatever, it's been five years since DC's had its most famous modern. It's been traveling all over making the Phillips some needed cash. Welcome home.
JUST as exciting is the reopening of the Rothko Room in the new 1618 extension of the Phillips.
