Art Styles in 19th century - Art Map


Pierre-Auguste Renoir


Pierre-Auguste Renoir

(b Limoges, 25 Feb 1841; d Cagnes-sur-Mer, 3 Dec 1919).

French painter, printmaker and sculptor. He was one of the founders and leading exponents of IMPRESSIONISM from the late 1860s, producing some of the movement’s most famous images of carefree leisure. He broke with his Impressionist colleagues to exhibit at the Salon from 1878, and from c. 1884 he adopted a more linear style indebted to the Old Masters. His critical reputation has suffered from the many minor works he produced during his later years.
