See Renoir’s On the Shore of the Seine (c. 1879)—the diminutive landscape painting stolen from the museum 63 years ago—reunited with more than 20 artworks from the extraordinary collection of Saidie May. This visionary Baltimore collector purchased the Renoir in 1925, and gave her entire estate to the BMA, including masterworks by Juan Gris, Paul Klee, Joan Miró, and other influential 20th-century artists. These works are presented along with archival documents that helped the BMA recover the Renoir painting.
