What are Paintings for, Anyway?
'My father was terrified of what is grim, sad and pretentious....' said film director JEAN RENom of his father's smiling, untroubled art - art which made him the most popular of the great
Impressionist painters. This film, made as the current Renoir Exhibition at the Hayward Gallery, London, was being assembled, looks at the aims and achievements of that surprisingly rare phenomenon - an artist who insisted that his paintings were, above all, intended to give pleasure. But is that all art is for?
