  •  In late October, visited as a tour one half-day.  On a hill overlooking the town of Cagnes-sur-Mer Le Collet. Until 1919, Renoir died in 1908 and families with rheumatoid arthritis continues to live, made vigorous painting is. Did you know as tsuguharu Fujita, Modigliani, and Sisley came to visit that place. (Modigliani was especially panned from Renoir to love and respect and I was shocked he said. ) In the spacious olive groves (never seen in Japan), farmer initial purchase and home building family and disciples live and then the painting was published as the Museum of fine arts.  By 2013, renovation is becoming substantial. You could feel the landscape paintings and sculptures are on display as well as the famous nude paintings, Renoir, another plane. Painting production while riding in a wheelchair has been reproduced along with the photo, was impressed. I felt the tenacity of the Renoir had disciples turns the Renoir children in painting and art, draw a picture here as well as the disciples to bring up until the end.

  • Very interesting, an author discovered through his daily life. Like many museums, it is available to anyone under 26 years old, so this facilitates the Organization of educational field trips.

  • We visited on a tour. Located towards the top of the Hill, a little walk away down the bus came to the front gate. The environment is very clean, very good. Opening and at the same time so other visitors not only to name a few, could be seen slowly. Atelier and deep emotion that could feel Renoir's later years living there works a little dwelling in the wheelchair, kitchen and bathroom. Also, while garden but I took a walk. The view from here is wonderful.
