Pierre Renoir

Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) was a French painter initially associated with the Impressionist movement. His early works were typically Impressionist snapshots of real life, filled with vibrant color and light. However, by the mid-1880s, he had departed from the movement and started using a more disciplined, formal technique for portraits and figure paintings, especially of women. It has been said that “Renoir is the final representative of a tradition which runs directly from Rubens to Watteau.”
