Full-Length Renoirs at the Frick

Beginning on February 7, 2012 the Frick Collection will be exhibiting nine of Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s most notable paintings. This will be the first comprehensive study of the great impressionists encounter with the full-length format.

The grand-scale of the artist’s canvases are some of his most ambitious and daring ventures into contemporary subjects, considered by many to be among the masterpieces of impressionist painting.

This special exhibition, which will be at the Frick until May 13, includes works on loan from many of the world’s greatest houses of art. Among the nine works on display will be La Parisienne, The Umbrellas, (in the US for viewing for the first time since 1866) and Dance in the City and Dance in the Country.
