Oliver LESPAGNOL, President of the Renoir Association :

“Faithful to our founders and thanks to the support of our historic patron Champagne Devaux and our new partner Crédit Agricole via its foundation Agir en Champagne Bourgogne, we are relaunching the Bourse Renoir for the summer of 2023 by welcoming an artist in residence to Essoyes.

With the support of Emmanuel Renoir, the painter’s great-grandson, Honorary President and member of the jury, we’re ready to take up the challenge of promoting the past while looking to the future. We also have the support of the Essoyes municipality, and are working in partnership with the “Du Côté des Renoir” cultural site.

The Renoir Association is a dynamic organisation that organises numerous events throughout the year.

The August and September residency of the winner of the Bourse Renoir 2023 will provide an opportunity to organise meetings and events with the public in the studio of the Master of Impressionism, as well as exhibitions of the artist’s final work in the local area.

Whether you live in the region or are just passing through, the events organised are a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of art and enjoy enriching cultural experiences. Join us and let yourself be carried away by the magic of these events, which celebrate the artistic heritage and creativity of the Renoir.
