Please join Colin Bailey, Director of the Morgan Library & Museum, as he presents the lecture " 'The Loveliest Nudes Ever Painted': An Introduction to Renoir and the Nude" in conjunction with the special exhibition Renoir: The Body, The Senses. Over the course of his long career, Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) continually turned to the human figure for artistic inspiration. The body--particularly the nude--was the defining subject of Renoir's artistic practice, from his early days as a student copying the old masters in the Louvre to the early twentieth century, when his revolutionary style of painting inspired the masters of modernism. The curators of this exhibition reconsider Renoir as a constantly evolving artist whose style moved from Realism into Impressionism, culminating in the modern classicism of his last decades.
