“Why shouldn’t art be pretty? There are enough unpleasant things in the world.” -Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Happy birthday Pierre-Auguste Renoir! The famed artist was born on this day in 1841 in in Limoges, France. He is celebrated as a prominent leader of the Impressionist circle, best known for his radiant paintings of French leisure scenes. Renoir’s work always seems to be about pleasurable occasions, and reveals no great seriousness in his subjects.
