World's Timeless Masterpieces- Renoir

Girls at the Piano (1892)
Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Musee d'Orsay, Paris

Pierre-Auguste Renoir (February 25, 1841- December 3, 1919) was a leading painter in the development of the Impressionist style. As a celebrator of beauty, and especially feminine sensuality, it has been said that, "Renoir is the final representative of a tradition which runs directly from Rubens to Watteau." In 1919, Renoir visited the Louvre to see his paintings hanging with the old masters. He died in the village of Cagnes-sur-Mer, Provence-Alpes- Cote d' Azor, on December 3, 1919.
