Pierre-Auguste Renoir - part 11

Pierre Auguste Renoir by Jean Louis Forain lithograph The Cleveland Museum of Art, Ohio
An innovative artist, Pierre-Auguste Renoir was born on February 25, 1841, in Limoges, France. He started out as an apprentice to a porcelain painter and studied drawing in his free time. After years as a struggling painter, Renoir helped launch an artistic movement called Impressionism in the 1870s. He eventually became one of the most highly regarded artists of his time. He died in Cagnes-sur-Mer, France, in 1919.

1888-92 In the MeadowBetween 1888 and 1892 Renoir painted a number of works in which the same pair of girls - the blonde wearing a white dress and the brunette in a pink dress - engage in leisurely pastimes.
