Exhibition on Screen presents a fascinating film about Pierre-Auguste Renoir, one of the world’s most divisive artists.

Although he was known and loved for his impressionist paintings of Paris, Renoir grew weary of this style and changed course. This beautiful film, based on the incredible collection of 181 Renoir works at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, explores the direction he then took and why it continues to cause such extreme reactions.

Some people feel repulsed by Renoir’s later works, while others actually feel seduced. Many might be surprised to learn that two leaders of 20th century art – Picasso and Matisse, were highly influenced by these new Renoirs.

The film is a fresh new biography of this artistic giant but more than that it uncovers a rarely told story that places Renoir as a critical link between the old and the new.

Exhibition On Screen was launched in 2012 in response to the increasing demand for high quality, in-depth arts programming. Films bring the experience of blockbuster art exhibitions from around the world to cinema audiences.

Tickets for all Towngate screenings can be purchased at the door and are $7 per person. Box office opens one hour prior to each screening.  You can purchase beer, wine, soda, water, popcorn and candy at all Towngate movies.
