Clark Center

SOLD OUT

Sterling and Francine Clark had a special affection for Pierre-Auguste Renoir. His works had pride of place in their collection. With almost forty works by the artist in the Clark’s collection today, Renoir is a favorite among visitors. In advance of the summer 2019 exhibition, Renoir: The Body, The Senses, which coincides with the centennial of the artist’s death, we are taking the opportunity to look closely at Renoir’s career and legacy. Please join us for six member-exclusive talks with Clark curatorial staff that focus on the artist's works in the Clark collection. 

PLEASE NOTE: Reservations are required for all member events unless specified otherwise. Due to security regulations and the sensitive nature of works in our collection, we cannot accept walk-ins.
