Auguste Renoir (French, 1841–1919)

One of the founding members of the Impressionist movement, Renoir is an artist best known for his depictions of pretty children, flowers, pleasant scenes, and curvy women. Taking great pleasure in his work, Renoir drew inspiration from a variety of sources and experimented with new techniques throughout his career. Renoir was the first Impressionist to detach from the movement's ultramodern direction and his enthusiasm for painting was obvious to all who met him and observed his work. Renoirs sensual works such as The Bathers and Nude in the Sun are some of the most famous and frequently-reproduced in the history of art. It has been said that "Renoir is the final representative of a tradition which runs directly from Rubens to Watteau" and he earned a huge following for his unique painting style.
