Pierre-Auguste Renoir: Mother and Child 500-piece Jigsaw Puzzle
Pierre-Auguste Renoir (French, 1841–1919)
Young Mother (Jeune mère)
One of the best-loved painters in the history of modern art, Pierre-Auguste Renoir (French, 1841–1919) created paintings that are charming and accessible, yet often boldly experimental, with loose brushstrokes and unexpected compositional arrangements. 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 that continue to charm audiences 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.”
