- Auguste Renoir (25 February 1841, Limoges — 3 December 1919, Cagnes-sur-Mer) was a French painter, graphic artist and sculptor
, one of the main representatives
of impressionism .
Renoir is known primarily as a master of social portraits
, not devoid of sentimentality; he was the first of the Impressionists to gain success with wealthy Parisians. In the mid-1880s, he actually broke with impressionism, returning to the linearity of classicism, to engrism.
Renoir was truly honored with fame and universal recognition only in the last years of his life.
