Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) painted landscapes throughout his life. Renoir Landscapes brings together some 70 paintings from across Europe and the USA and from as far afield as Tokyo (Laundry Boat on the Seine, near Paris, Morohashi Museum of Modern Art) and Sao Paulo (Jules le Coeur Walking in the Fontainbleau Forest with his Dogs, Museu de Arte), with many works from private collections. The exhibition includes beguiling Impressionist images of sunny outdoor socialising in the Parisian suburbs, such as Monet painting in his Garden in Argenteuil (Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, CT), and the National Gallery's own Boating on the Seine/The Skiff. After London, the exhibition travels to the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa (8 June - 9 September 2007) and to the Philadelphia Museum of Art (30 September 2007 - 6 January 2008).
