How can your hate a famous and (mostly) beloved Impressionist Pierre Auguste Renoir? Evidently, these people can. And they do, with quite a bit of vigor (and perhaps humor). The R.S.A.P. (Renoir Sucks At Painting) movement is all about replacing the sucky Renoir painting at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, with more worthy art. Perhaps more performance art than a critic's statement, the establishment never-the-less won't hear of it, as Genevieve Renoir, Renoir's great-great-granddaughter, counters in the NY Times that her ancestor's art has sold for $78 million. Perhaps absurdity is only a matter of perspective?!
God Hates Renoir!
