This event has ended.

Father and son, Painter and Film director; Two giants of art, together for the first time in Japan.
An exhibition dedicated to the great painter Renoir and the great film director Renoir. Pierre-Auguste Renoir(1841-1919), one of the Impressionist masters, exerted a tremendous influence on the world of painting. His second son, Jean Renoir (1894- 1979) grew up to be an acclaimed film director and left a giant mark on the world of film. The show illuminates the close relationship and common devotion to their vocation shared by father and son, through people and places they were familiar with or by direct comparisons of master works from each. This unique-style exhibition will be held for the first time in Japan with the full cooperation from the Orsay Museum in Paris. It consists of approximately 50 paintings and 15 extracts of films that assure satisfaction from both art and film lovers.
