Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Luncheon of the Boating Party (1880–81). The Phillips Collection

Renoir and Friends: Luncheon of the Boating Party will focus on The Phillips Collection’s celebrated Luncheon of the Boating Party (1880-1881) by Pierre-Auguste Renoir and the diverse circle of friends who inspired it. The first exhibition to focus on this singular masterwork in more than 20 years, it is comprised of over 40 carefully chosen works—paintings, drawings, pastels, watercolors, and photographs from public and private collections around the world—that reveal the story of Luncheon of the Boating Party and the artists and patrons who were instrumental in its creator’s success.
