Pierre-Auguste Renoir - part 4


Self-Portrait 1875c oil on canvas 39.1 x 31.7 cm Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, Williamstown, MA
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.

1877 Eugène Murer:

Murer was an artist, celebrated pastry cook, restaurateur, novelist, poet, and avid collector of Impressionist paintings. By 1887, ten years after he sat for this portrait, he had amassed some 122 works by his painter friends, including 15 by Renoir, whom he called "the greatest artist of our century." 
It has been suggested that Murer's pose and gaze in this work served as a model for Van Gogh's famous portrait of another great Impresionist collector, Dr. Paul-Ferdinand Gachet, Murer's neighbour in Auvers.
