Hot on the heels of Monday’s spontaneous uprising outside Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, “Renoir Sucks at Painting” fever has spread to the Left Coast! Friday at noon, a throng of six–possibly seven–people massed outside the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena to demand the removal of the works of Pierre-Auguste Renoir, the Thomas Kinkade of the Impressionist movement.
According to Max Geller’s definitive Renoir Sucks at Painting Instagram feed:
“BABYLONIAN STORMTROOPERS of the Pasadena, California police department shut down today’s #Renoirsucksatpainting protest. But not before our searing message of truth was delivered to the people. Proud day.”
