One of the best-loved painters in the history of modern art, Pierre-Auguste Renior (French, 1841-1919) exhibited with the Impressionists in the 1870s and early 1880s and went on to paint for three more decades, focusing on bucolic landscapes, scenes of his family, and portraiture. He is know above all for his mastery of color and his facility in the handling of paint-qualities that during his own time won him the admiration of his peers. The twelve paintings reproduced here are from The Barnes Foundation, which houses more than 180 works by Renoir.
