About Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Pierre-Auguste Renoir was a French artist who was famous for being one of the top artists championing the impressionism movement (a style of painting from the 19th century which was characterized by small, thin and visible brush strokes with a focus on elements like the changing of light, movement, etc.).
He was born to Leonard Renoir, a tailor. In 1890, he got married to Aline Victorine Charigot.
Charigot had already worked with Renoir as a model in the past before their marriage and she continued to be a subject matter for his paintings afterwards. They had three sons; Pierre Renoir, Jean Renoir, and Claude Renoir.
Alexandre Renoir, Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s great-grandson, is a famous artist who has held notable exhibitions.
He was diagnosed of rheumatoid arthritis in 1892, which made it difficult for him to paint, yet he did not give up. He reportedly grasped his paintbrushes with the help of an assistant. He died in December 1919.
