HIS SON WAS THE TRUE ARTIST:

'Renoir sucks at painting' movement demands removal of artist's works (Mahita Gajanan, 10/07/15, The Guardian)

Holding signs that said "ReNOir", "Take 'em down! Renoir Sucks" and "God Hates Renoir", members of the Renoir Sucks at Painting movement protested outside the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston on Monday. The group, led by organizer Max Geller, demanded the museum remove Renoir paintings - of which there are many, including the famous Dance at Boufival, 1883 - from its walls.

When the Guardian asked why he dislikes Renoir so much, Geller countered: "Why do so many people think he's good? Have you looked at his paintings?

"In real life, trees are beautiful. If you take Renoir's word for it, you'd think trees are just a collection of green squiggles," Geller said.

It's just splatters.
