"La Trenza", de Renoir

Pierre-Auguste Renoir, the French master of the impressionist movement, is the focus of the exhibition Renoir: Intimacy, open at the Thyssen Museum in Madrid. For those of you who love good art who, for whatever reason, have yet to enjoy the French artist’s artwork, be aware that the exhibition comes to an end on January 22.

The museum’s official website recommends that you buy your tickets in advance. You still have a few days, but it is best to plan in advance in these cases, particularly if you want to be awed by an exhibition which emphasizes the central role played by tactile sensations in Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s paintings. Sensations which are present in all the different phases of his career and are expressed through a wide range of genres including group scenes, portraits, nudes, still lifes and landscapes.

Renoir: Intimacy is an exhibition comprising more than 70 works by the French artist, loaned from museums and collections world-wide. The exhibition reveals (for the experts among us) the way Renoir made use of the tactile qualities of volume, material and textures as a vehicle to depict intimacy in its different forms – social intimacy, among friends and family, or erotic – and how that imagery connects the work and the viewer to the sensuality of the brushstroke and the pictorial surface. After Madrid, the exhibition will subsequently be shown at the Museo de Bellas Artes de Bilbao from February 7 to May 15, 2017.
