Product Description
Renoir Notecard Folio
Pierre-Auguste Renoir (French, 1841–1919) is one of the most well-loved painters in the history of modern art. After exhibiting with the Impressionists in the 1870s and early 1880s, Renoir went on to paint for three more decades, focusing on the bucolic landscapes of the south of France, idealized bathing groups, scenes of his family, and portraiture. His paintings are charming and accessible, yet often boldly experimental, with loose brushstrokes and unexpected compositional arrangements. Throughout his career Renoir looked to the past for inspiration and was influenced especially by eighteenth-century French painters and by the artists of the Italian Renaissance. He is known above all for his mastery of color and facility in the handling of paint—qualities that during his own time won him the admiration of his peers, including Henri Matisse, and which continue to astonish us today.

As Albert C. Barnes explains in his book The Art in Painting (The Barnes Foundation Press, 1935), "[Renoir's] temperament made him love and observe attentively the commonplace people and incidents of life, so that in his hands they cease to be commonplace and are suffused with a poetic charm. His imaginative discernment makes them living people for him, and he delights in surrounding them with the wealth of sensuous quality, the voluptuousness that came from his own rich endowment."
