Fathom Events and SpectiCast Examine the Life of One of the World’s Most Debated Artists with “Renoir - Revered and Reviled” in Select U.S. Cinemas on April 21

Fathom Events and SpectiCast present the fourth title in the “Art & Architecture in Cinema” series, “Renoir - Revered and Reviled,” in select movie theaters nationwide on Thursday, April 21, 2016. Based on the Barnes Foundation’s remarkable collection and directed by Phil Grabsky for season three of EXHIBITION ON SCREEN, Renoir - Revered and Reviled uncovers the rarely told story of Renoir’s artistic reinvention following his rejection of Impressionism in the early 1890s, and explores its profound implications for both Picasso and Matisse.

Renoir is one of the most fiercely debated artists and yet, one of the most influential. Picasso collected more Renoirs than any other artist. Matisse revered him; Monet too. He was an artist that was instrumental in creating the Impressionist movement and then totally rejected it and went in the opposite direction - with extraordinary results. “The Barnes Collection” in Philadelphia has more Renoirs than any other gallery in the world, and it is there that the search begins to tell the incredible story of this remarkable artist.
