Calling all film buffs: If you haven’t seen our Renoir exhibition exposing the intersections between painting and cinema, don't miss the show’s final weeks! Here’s an interesting fact from The Criterion Collection: “One of the juxtapositions in the exhibition sets Pierre-Auguste’s 1876 painting 'The Swing' next to a clip from Jean’s 1936 film 'A Day in the Country.' To shoot the film’s most famous scene, Renoir had a contraption set up that would allow his cinematographer to sway along with his young actress on an outdoor swing.” #DadandMe 🔎Checkout screenings of Jean Renoir films at Lightbox Film Center, now through September 3rd. ➡️ Book tickets: http://bit.ly/Renoir-Father-Son 🔗 Read The Criterion Collection review: https://www.criterion.com/current/posts/5719-juxtaposing-pierre-auguste-and-jean-renoir
