CHICAGO — For a very long time, art experts have looked at the paintings of Pierre-Auguste Renoir and have appreciated his celebration of feminist beauty.
Renoir is mostly thought of as one of the leading painters of the Impressionist period of the late 1800’s and his “Girl with a Watering Can” is a work that most people recognize and admire.
But Max Geller begs to differ. Geller thinks Renoir sucks at painting and has come to Chicago to keep his protest going.
He has dubbed his efforts as “a Grassroots movement for cultural justice” and says he is going to picket the Art Institute of Chicago, which is home to more than 60 Renoir paintings.
Geller joins WGN today live to explain his argument. You can join the debate via Twitter by following #RenoirSucksAtPainting.
