Renoir - A Master of Impressionism

Author(s): Gerhard Gruitrooy


Pierre-Auguste Renoir, perhaps the most recognizable of the Impressionist portraitists, was a painter who combined classical and modern techniques to portray an intimate vision of the late-nineteenth-century Parisian life of leisure he knew so well. As a colorist and portrait painter, Renoir's contributions to the highly influential Impressionist movement were substantial. His concentration on the figure and on the more pleasing aspects of life invited the viewer into his remarkable vision of sensitivity and pleasure. Illustrated with 129 full-color reproductions, this volume examines Renoir's life and the extraordinary artistry that has made him one of the most beloved painters of all time.
