PIerre-Auguste Renoir Biography

Pierre-Auguste Renoir was a French artist from Limoges. He was born in 1841. Renoir was a leading painter in the development of the Impressionist style. He was a celebrator of beauty and feminine sensuality. Renoir came from a working class family, as a boy he worked in a porcelain factory, his drawing talents led him to be chosen to paint designs on fine china. Before going to art school he visited the Louvre to study French master painters. In 1862 he studied under Charles Gleyre in Paris. It was there that he met Alfred Sisley and Claude Monet. During the 1960’s there where times where he could not afford to buy paint. It was in 1864 that he started exhibiting paintings at the Paris salon but it was only 10 years later that he gained recognition, due in part to the turmoil of the Franco-Prussian war. In 1874 the 10 year friendship he held with Jules Le Coeur and his family had ended, Renoir not only lost the support gained by the association but also a generous welcome to stay on their property near Fontainebleau and its scenic forest. In 1881, Renoir traveled to Algeria, a country he associated with Eugene Delacroix, then to Madrid to see the work of Diego Velazquez, followed by Italy to see Titan’s masterpieces in Florence and Raphael’s paintings in Rome. In January 1882 he met the composer Richard Wagner at his home in Palermo and painted his portrait in just 35 minutes. During that year he caught pneumonia, which permanently damaged his respiratory system, he convalesced in Algeria. While living in Montmartre, Renoir employed as a model Suzanne Valadon who posed for him. In 1887, when the Queen Victoria celebrated her Golden Jubilee, and upon the request of the queen’s associate, he donated several paintings to the “French Impressionist Painting’s” catalogue as a token of his loyalty. In 1890, Renoir married Aline Victorine Charigot, who along with a number of the artists friends had already served as a model for Le Dejeuner des canotiers and with whom he already had a son, Pierre in 1885. Following his marriage Renoir painted many scenes of his wife and everyday family life, including their children and nurse. Around 1892, Renoir developed rheumatoid arthritis. In 1907 Renoir and his family moved to the warmer climate of “Les Colettes”, a farm at Cagnes-sur-mer in the south of France. Renoir painted during the last 20 years of his life, though arthritis limited his movements. And he was wheelchair-bound. He was forced to adapt his painting techniques because he developed progressive deformities in his hands and ankylosis of his right shoulder. In 1919, Pierre-Auguste Renoir visited the Louvre to see his paintings hanging with those of the old masters. He died in the village of Cagne-sur-mer on December 3rd.
