1915 Film Captures Pierre-Auguste Renoir At Work

This morning a bright, painterly light was cast on my rainy drive to work. Playing on NPR’s Morning Edition was a story about impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir. A new film titled Renoir was given a rave review, and a little known secret was also revealed: the real Renoir was captured on film in 1915! Click play on the video below and you can see the master painter himself, intently working at his easel.  Make sure to read the rest of the fascinating interview and story here.
