Renoir's Great-Grandson to Appear at Artexpo Las Vegas

NEW YORK.- Alexandre Renoir, the great grandson of famous French Impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir, will make a series of special appearances at Artexpo Las Vegas from September 28 to 30. The young Renoir will work on hand-painted lithographs from noon to 3pm daily.

Alexandre moved from the south of France to Canada when he was 4 years old and grew up surrounded by art and artists. His famous family members include film director Jean Renoir, actor Pierre Renoir, director of photography Claude Renoir Jr., and Claude’s daughter actress Sophie Renoir, to name a few.

Alexandre went to various arts-oriented schools and garnered experience in sculpture, pottery, woodworking, stone carving, commercial art, photography and painting. Although he was immersed in arts and culture, Alexandre remained primarily an observer until his drawing abilities were tapped by his brother Emmanuel. During a visit to La Jolla, CA, Emmanuel gave Alexandre some drawing paper and challenged him to draw with charcoal. The results were impressive; from the first sheet, Alexandre could naturally draw in various styles. His charcoal drawings are created with a sense of ease and grace that is reminiscent of the beauty and charm of the Impressionist period.

Alexandre's works currently reside in private collections in numerous cities throughout Canada and a North American tour of galleries is underway with exhibitions planned in Europe and Asia. This is his first appearance at Artexpo, where he will be exhibiting lithographs and original paintings.

Art collectors from all walks of life, whether novices or experienced buyers, are expected to attend the show and explore the latest trends in the fine art world; purchasing both traditional and cutting-edge works ranging from original paintings and sculptures to limited-edition lithographs, giclees, animation art, photography and more.

Artexpo Las Vegas builds on the success of the world’s largest fine and popular art fair, Artexpo New York, which will celebrate its 30th anniversary in February, 2008 at the Javits Convention Center in New York City. Over its storied history, Artexpo has helped propel the careers of some of the finest American artists of the 20th century, including Andy Warhol, Peter Max, Robert Indiana, Leroy Neiman and Robert Rauschenberg.

Tickets for Artexpo Las Vegas are available the day of the show at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, or at The show is open to the public on Friday, September 28 from 12-6pm, Saturday, September 29 from 11am to 6pm, and Sunday, September 30 from 11am to 5pm. Adult tickets for Artexpo Las Vegas are $10 a day; $5 for seniors and students. Children under 12 are free.
