Auguste Renoir Oil Paintings
Pierre-Auguste Renoir was born on 25 February 1841, death on 3 December 1919, was a French artist who was a leading painter in the development of the Impressionist style. His early works were typically Impressionist snapshots of real life, full of sparkling colour and light. By the mid-1880s, however, Renoir had broken with the movement to apply a more disciplined, formal technique to portraits and figure paintings, particularly of women.
