NPR has a story on the Late Renoir show at LACMA that’s been getting a ton of press. (Click on the player above to listen to it.) Susan Stamberg narrates on Morning Edition:
“I am just learning how to paint,” Pierre-Auguste Renoir said in 1913 — six years before he died. The French master painted right up to the end of his life; he died in 1919 at age 78.
Works made by Renoir in the last three decades of his life — nudes, landscapes, girls at a piano, children with their nannies — are on display at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
