    Two Fairmount landmarks are on their way back. Reopening May 16 is Bridgid's at 24th and Meredith Streets, under new owner Jose Vargas. Chris Ryan, who opened it 29 years ago, closed it in February and sold the bricks to a partnership. Vargas says he will maintain the name and the general neighborhood-bar ambiance.

"Jean certainly gleaned a love of the scenery and time period of his father’s paintings. He shot many of his films in the French locales where his father and other Impressionists preferred to paint en plein air—like Marlotte, Paris, and Cagnes-sur-Mer. And he chose narratives set in the 19th century, such as Nana (1926), based on an Émile Zola novel; and French Cancan (1955), inspired by Parisian dance halls, such as the Moulin Rouge. He also forged the practice of filming outdoors, following the suit of painters who took their easels to the countryside." via Artsy Book your tickets to explore Renoir: Father and Son/Painting and Cinema http://bit.ly/Renoir-Father-Son

    How Pierre-Auguste Renoir's Paintings Inspired His Son's Famous Films
    "If certain landscapes, certain costumes, bring to mind my father's paintings," Jean said about one of his films, Partie de campagne (1936), in an interview with Cahiers du Cinéma, "it's for two reasons: first, because it takes place during the period and in a place where my father worked a great deal in his youth.

Imagine having a world-famous dad. In his long career, celebrated filmmaker Jean Renoir could not escape the influence of his father, the great impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Was it reverence or rivalry? The plot thickens in our new exhibition RENOIR: FATHER AND SON/PAINTING AND CINEMA. #dadandme Read the review by the The Wall Street Journal Now on view: https://www.barnesfoundation.org/whats-on/renoir-father-son
