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.
