Pierre-August Renoir (1841-1919) was a French Impressionist painter known for his eye for color and the movement of light. One of the most famous Impressionists, Renoir’s works depict Parisian modernity by way of content families and domesticity. Renoir was more interested in issues of color, composition and depth than many of his Impressionist contemporaries who instead became famed for their quick captures of individual moments of weather or light. Renoir can be seen as the bridge between Impressionism and twentieth-century movements like Cubism through his introduction of underlying structure into the Impressionist mode as well as his impeccable talent as a colorist.
