Pierre-Auguste Renoir
(1841-1919)


Pierre Auguste Renoir was a French impressionist painter noted for his radiant, intimate paintings. Recognized by critics as one of the greatest and most independent painters of his period, Renoir is noted for the harmony of his lines, the brilliance of his color, and the intimate charm of his wide variety of subjects. He was interested in painting the single human figure or family group portraits as he was in landscapes. He did not subordinate composition and plasticity of form to attempts at rendering the effect of light.Renoir was born in Limoges in 1841. As a child he worked in a porcelain factory in Paris, painting designs on china. He studied painting formally in 1862-63 at the academy of the Swiss painter Charles Gabriel Gleyre in Paris. Renoir’s early work was influenced by two French artists, Claude Monet, in his treatment of light and the romantic painter Eugène Delacroix in his treatment of color.
