Pierre-Auguste Renoir

French Impressionism Painter

Renoir is best known for his portraits of women, children and groups of happy, casual people. More than the other Impressionists, he was interested in form and used rough brushwork to capture it. He continued to paint even after being crippled by arthritis (he had brushes tied to his hands). His paintings always retained their happy feeling, though.

Important Works:
Moulin de la Galette, 1876
Madame Charpentier and her Children, 1878
Luncheon of the Boating Party, 1881
The Bathers, 1884-87

Birth: February 25, 1841, Limoges, France
Death: December 3, 1919, Cagnes, France
