Renoir in Guernsey, 1883

Art for Guernsey is hosting a new exhibition – Renoir in Guernsey, 1883 – from 30 September to 15 December 2023.

This special event will be the only Renoir exhibition in the world in 2023 and celebrates the 140th anniversary of Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s stay in Guernsey and how he was inspired by the island’s landscape.

The centrepiece of the event will be a fine art exhibition at Candie Museum, with other exhibitions and activities planned at the Priaulx Library, the Renoir Walk at Moulin Huet, and Art for Guernsey Gallery on Mansell Street.

The exhibition is being staged in partnership with the Guernsey Museums and the Musée des Impressionnismes Giverny, including a host of major international loans.

In a press release, Helen Glencross, head of Heritage Services at Guernsey Museums, said: “Guernsey Museums is absolutely delighted to partner with Art for Guernsey and the Musée des impressionnismes Giverny to bring together artworks by Renoir in this spectacular exhibition, marking his trip to Guernsey 140 years ago. 

“We are excited to be part of the programme of exhibitions and events focused on Renoir and we look forward to welcoming visitors to engage with and be inspired by this celebrated Impressionist artist.”

Cyrille Sciama, director of the Musée des Impressionnismes Giverny, added: “I am very pleased to curate this exhibition with our friends at Art for Guernsey and the Guernsey Museums.

“I am sure the works by Renoir will bring happiness to the people of Guernsey: it is such a joy to bring back the works to where they were painted!”
