Biography   Pierre Auguste Renoir


/ ren-WAHR /    click to hear
Renoir was born on February 25, 1841, in the small manufacturing town of Limoges. His family moved to Paris when he was four years old.  Gounod advised him to become a musician, but Renoir felt more compulsion toward the graphic arts.  At thirteen he joined a ceramic establishment where he painted flowers on porcelain. Later he supported himself by decorating fans.  In 1861 he joined the Gleyre atelier where Sisley, Monet and Bazille were also studying.  None of them was very happy there, but Renoir especially was out of sympathy with the academic atmosphere of the place.  When the master accused him of seeking amusement from painting, he replied that of course he did, or he would otherwise abandon the pursuit.    ...  Displaying 750 of 9902 characters.
