34 Pins366 Followers
French artist, Pierre-Auguste Renoir (Feb 25, 1841–Dec 3, 1919), was a leading pioneer in the Impressionist Art movement. His paintings are impressionistic snapshots of real life, often suggesting the details of a scene through freely brushed touches of color, softly fusing his figures with one another and with their surroundings. A prolific artist, he created several thousand paintings. The single largest collection of his works—181 paintings in all—is at the Barnes Foundation, in Philadelphia.
