Renoir’s life and works are full of love, light and colour. Indeed, the artist created his masterpieces by drawing on the experiences of his life and described what he saw and experienced with rapid brushstrokes, creating images that seem barely sketched.
Famous for his Impressionist style and for his paintings depicting everyday life, nature and the women in his life, his paintings depict scenes of Parisian life at the time.
Renoir’s art influenced many other artists, including Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, and in this post I will tell you about his works in five points.
