"Jeanny Samari" by Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Pierre-Auguste Renoir, commonly known as Auguste Renoir (1841 - 1919), was a French artist who was a leading painter in the development of the Impressionist style. As a celebrator of beauty, and especially feminine sensuality, it has been said that "Renoir is the final representative of a tradition which runs directly from Rubens to Watteau."
He was the father of actor Pierre Renoir (1885-1952), filmmaker Jean Renoir (1894-1979) and ceramic artist Claude Renoir (1901-69). He was the grandfather of the filmmaker Claude Renoir (1913-1993), son of Pierre.
Pierre-Auguste Renoir was born in Limoges, Haute-Vienne, France, the child of a working-class family. As a boy, he worked in a porcelain factory where his drawing talents led to his being chosen to paint designs on fine china. Before he enrolled in art school, he also painted hangings for overseas missionaries and decorations on fans. During those early years, he often visited the Louvre to study the French master painters.
In a career spanning 60 years, Pierre Auguste Renoir executed more than 4000 paintings.
