Definition

Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) was a French impressionist painter. Capable of painting in many different styles, even in the same painting, Renoir was certainly prolific, creating over 6,000 paintings in a long career. He had a preference for nudes and children, but although the subjects varied over the years, he almost always presents a colourful and carefree view of the world.
