If you like the paintings, then you’ll be amused to know that there’s a “Renoir Sucks at Painting” movement led by one Max Geller. Here’s a quote from an NPR interview:
- “I hate Renoir because he is the most overrated artist east, west, north and south of the river Seine. I think in real life trees are beautiful and the human eyeball conveys emotional force. If you took his word for it, trees would be a collection of disgusting, green squiggly lines and eyeballs would be jet black as if they were colored by sharpies. In real life trees are beautiful. Renoir just sucks at painting.”
Methinks, however, that Mr. Geller is putting one over on us.
