Ottawa - May 9, 2007

As the exhibition comes to an end in London, the National Gallery of Canada is getting ready to host Renoir Landscapes in exclusivity from 8 June to 9 September 2007. In less than two months, the first major exhibition of the artist’s landscape paintings will arrive in Ottawa for its only Canadian stop, and will be presented by Sun Life Financial. Until then, visit our Renoir website to learn more about the show and while you are at it, buy your tickets!

Waiting for Renoir…
An illustrated catalogue, with essays by co-curators Colin B. Bailey and Christopher Riopelle as well as other art specialists, enhances the exhibition’s content. The catalogue, destined to become a reference on Renoir’s artwork, is available at the National Gallery of Canada Bookstore in French and English versions.

The works
The exhibition features close to 60 paintings by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, on loan from art museums and private collections around the world. Through the landscapes, we can follow the evolution of Renoir's style, from his early landscapes to fully developed impressionism, and discover how he integrated new elements and expanded his colour palette following travels in Algeria and Italy.
