Join Laura, our Art Therapy intern, for an inter-village discussion on one of the most notable paintings housed in Washington D.C., Renoir’s Luncheon of the Boating Party. Members from Foggy Bottom, Dupont Circle, Georgetown, and Palisades Villages are all welcome to join this online discussion. Looking deeper into the painting, the discussion will entail a personal reflection on what features of the painting resonate the most with you. Which person do you relate to most? Aline in the foreground, or perhaps it’s Alphonse Fournais standing behind her.  What do you feel is the main emotion portrayed in this painting?

A magnificent painting, rich with history and story, join us on the 9th of December to share your thoughts on the painting and join in some collective art making in response to our discussion.*

In advance of this meeting, you are welcome to visit the Phillips to view this masterpiece in person. It is also available to view online here:

If you have any questions, please contact Laura at lauramahon@gwmail.gwu.edu or contact your DC Village office.
