Pierre-Auguste Renoir is one of the most famous French Impressionists. With a colourful palette he painted nightlife in Paris, portraits, bathing women and the landscape around Paris. From an early age he was busy painting and in 1862 he started his training at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Initially he looks at the work of Gustave Courbet, but his style becomes looser, lighter and with more colour. After his training he works in the studio of Charles Gleyre. Here Renoir meets other artists, including Alfred Sisley and Claude Monet. With Monet he often paints outdoors, en plein air, in the vicinity of Paris and Fontainebleau. Renoir exhibited at the Paris Salon and at the Salon des Indépendants and was a very versatile artist. His oeuvre is extensive and includes more than 6000 paintings, watercolours, sculptures, drawings and etchings. Almost all major museums own his work.
