Pierre-Auguste Renoir…

Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841 – 1919). A fabulous French genius, a leading painter in the development of the impressionist style, a celebrator of emotions & beauty. Renoir’s paintings are notable for their vibrant light & saturated colour, often focusing on people in intimate & candid compositions. He discovered that the colour of shadows is not brown or black, but the reflected colour of the objects surrounding them, an effect known today as diffuse reflection. A prolific & passionate artist. “One must from time to time attempt things that are beyond one’s capacity. Art is about emotion, if art needs to be explained, it is no longer art. I have no rules, no methods, no secrets.”
