The Barnes Foundation added 2 new photos.

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

The frontal lobe of the brain (located behind the forehead) handles all thought and voluntary behavior such as walking, speech, and problem solving, and some aspects of emotion. Development in this area really takes off between six and 12 months, when your baby becomes more mobile and verbal. #earlychildhood #education #learningthroughplay Learn More: Brain development: Frontal lobe | BabyCenter https://www.babycenter.com/0_brain-development-frontal-lobe_6611.bc
