Artist’s biography to the verso

Pierre-Auguste Renoir was born in Limoges, France, and is known for being one of the leading figures of French Impressionism. He moved to Paris at a young age where he revealed remarkable drawing abilities. Renoir was immersed in the decorative arts industry where he hand-painted china, fans, and signs always inspired in the 18th-century French Rococo masters. During 1862, he pursued his artistic inclinations and became part of the Atelier Gleyre, where he collaborated with his contemporaries Monet, Sisley, Bazille, Pissarro, and Cézanne. After integrating the group and exhibiting alongside the Impressionists, Renoir received a very hostile reception from critics and the public. He eventually solidified himself as a respected artist and successfully exhibited in the official Salons becoming the prominent and iconic artist that we know today. Renoir’s extensive work is part of many public collections including The Louvre, Paris; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; and the National Gallery, London among many others.
