Product Information

PIERRE-AUGUSTE RENOIR was born on February 25, 1841, in Limoges, France. As a teenager, Renoir became an apprentice to a porcelain painter. He learned to copy designs
and decorated plates, mugs and cups.

Renoir had to take a break from his work in 1870 when he was drafted into the army to serve in France's war against Germany. He was assigned to a cavalry unit, but he soon fell ill with dysentery. After the war ended in 1871, Renoir and some of his friends, including Pissarro, Monet, Cézanne and Edgar Degas, decided to show their works in Paris in 1874, this became known as the first Impressionist exhibition. The group's name is derived from a critical review of their show, in which the works were called "impressions" rather than finished paintings done using traditional methods. Renoir, like other Impressionists, embraced a brighter palette for his paintings, which gave them a sunnier and warmer feel. Renoir also used different types of brushstrokes to capture his artistic vision on the canvas.

Renoir passed away peacefully in Cagnes-sur-Mer, France, in 1919.
