Renoir

A new film, entitled Renoir, tells the story of Andrée Hessling, the last model of Renoir and the first actor in the films of his son, the film director Jean Renoir, whom she married. The story is set in Les Collettes in World War One.  It is as much a homage to Jean Renoir as to Auguste.

To discuss this film and the paintings of Renoir, in studio are Dr Róisín Kennedy, Art Historian and Lecturer in the School of Art History and Cultural Policy in UCD; and Paul Whitington, Film Critic, The Irish Independent, and Joan Scales of The Irish Times.
