L'Atelier Renoir :

In 1906, Pierre-Auguste Renoir built a studio at the end of the family garden. Enchanted by the light that comes through the glass roof and enters the room, he did many of his paintings here.

New exhibition today.

Have a pleasant break in the amazing world of one of the greatest Impressionist masters.

The wheelchair is one of the most important objects as it represents Renoir’s courage and his total devotion to painting.

Next to it, a screen is suspended on which a slideshow shows paintings reproductions of Essoyes.

A few picture rails too seem to levitate away from the wall. They deal with different important phases of the painter’s life: “In a masterly fashion” and manual activities – Renoir thought these were very important; “The dance of colours” – the painter’s eye is everything, and not his palette, as he used to say so well; “Loving live models” – he was not nicknamed the “figure” painter without reason; and finally “A sculptor in Essoyes”.

The Studio is a dream place for immersion, but not for reconstitution. It is a contemporary interpretation of the whirl of creation, a sort of rushing river carrying Renoir, according to his relatives.
You will find several genuine objects upstairs :

A box used to carry paintings in the train to Paris, a second renovated one in which three video devices have been integrated so you can see the painter work, letters from Aline, sculptures done with Louis Morel, etc. Very low and intermittent mood music.
The bird songs, the bells of the village church ringing, the sound of paintbrushes and humming create a joyous and gentle atmosphere.
