The Musée d'Orsay is celebrating the reopening of the Cinémathèque française with Renoir/Renoir: an exhibition dedicated to the Renoir family with particular focus on the painter, Pierre-Auguste, and his filmmaker son, Jean.

The show brings together paintings, including the masterpiece Bal du Moulin de la Galette, exerpts from films, and as yet unpublished documents of the time.

It is organised into five sections: self-portraits, family portraits, models, nature and dance, all themes tackled by both Pierre-Auguste and Jean Renoir.

The exhibition aims to shed a new light on the work of the Renoirs, and on the relationship between Cinema and the Fine Arts in general.
