“Renoir Truthers” are taking a stand against the French Impressionist in the name of cultural justice
An Instagram account named “Renoir Sucks at Painting” has started a movement that calls out the “Sharpie eyes”, “rosacea” and general “treacle” that French Impressionist artist Renoir employs in his paintings.
The movement’s spokesperson, Max Geller, finds the paintings so offensive he told Dazed that he would “like to see them thrown out into the street, like the rubbish that they are”. He also added the movement has “increased by 700 per cent” in recent weeks.
If you’d like to spearhead the UK contingent of the movement, head over to their Instagram now.
Check out a few prime cuts from the Insta below, including a tiff with Renoir’s great-great-grand daughter.
