Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919)


One of the greatest masters of French Impressionism, Pierre-Auguste Renoir created slightly over fifty original etchings or lithographs during his life. His first original graphic work of art was created in 1890 and, during the following ten years, he was encouraged to produce more etchings and lithographs by his friends, such as the etcher, Roux-Champion, and the publisher, Ambrose Vollard. The themes of Renoir's original prints are very much akin to those of his paintings; scenes of people he admired, children, bathers, nudes -- all examined in the ever changing light of the moment.
