Philadelphia, PA – Late 19th-century French artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir worked until his death in 1919. WRTI's Susan Lewis explores LATE RENOIR, an exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which makes the case that artworks created by Renoir during the final decades of his career were among his finest, and a model for future generations.

As senior producer of arts and culture, Susan writes and produces stories about music and the arts. She’s host and producer of WRTI’s TIME IN online interview series, and producer of The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert series, to which she also contributes weekly intermission interviews. She’s also been a regular host of WRTI’s Live from the Performance Studio sessions.
