Renoir, Pierre-Auguste:Pierre-Auguste Renoir was a French impressionist painter who was born on February 25, 1841, and passed away on December 3, 1919, at the age of 78. As a youth, he worked in a porcelain factory painting designs on fine china. He frequently visited the Louvre to study the French masters. He enrolled in art school in 1864 where he met Claude Monet. The two would later explore the use of reflected colors to simulate shadows. Renoir painted thousands of artworks, many of which are among the most recognized and reproduced paintings in art’s history. He regularly changed his art’s direction. During the latter part of his career, he split away from pure impressionism and incorporated more realism into his works. For the last 10 years of his life, he concentrated on nudes and domestic scenes. The Barnes Foundation of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has 181 of Renoir’s paintings, which is the largest collection of his works in the world. Some of his most notable paintings are “Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette,” “Luncheon of the Boating Party,” “Two Sisters,” "The Theatre Box”and “Girls at the Piano." During the last year of his life, he visited the Louvre to see his paintings displayed next to the French masters he had idolized in his youth. He died in the town of Cagnes-sur-Mer.
