Pierre-Auguste Renoir - part 3

Portrait of Pierre-Auguste Renoir 1867 by Frédéric Bazille
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.


For earlier works see parts 1 and 2 also. This is part 3 of a 30-part series on the works of Renoir:
