Renoir and Madrid...
Renoir, Intimacy - October 18, 2016 to January 20, 2017
Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid

Madrid's Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum presents an enthralling retrospective on the French artist and his ability to depict intimacy in its various forms (social, among friends, family or sexual).
More than 70 works from museums and collections all over the world draw us into the world of textures and suggestions Renoir used to express intimacy in his paintings.

The filmmaker Jean Renoir described how his father “looked at flowers, women and clouds in the sky as other men touch and caress”. In contrast to the habitual conception of Impressionism, which reduces it to “the purely visual”, the exhibitio…

the Weissenhof Museum, which illustrates the radical change in architecture around the time of the Second World War as well as Le Corbusier’s visionary thinking.
