Impressionistic Landscape - Pierre-Auguste Renoir


Over the course of his life, Renoir painted several thousand paintings. Although he quickly found commercial success, he seemed to be driven primarily by his enjoyment of the act of painting. He once remarked to his teacher, Gleyre, ‘If painting were not a pleasure to me I should certainly not do it’.

Shortly before he died in 1919 he visited the Louvre, where his work was now hung alongside the Old Masters he had long admired.
