Pierre-Auguste Renoir (February 25, 1841December 3, 1919) was a French artist who was a leading painter in the development of the Impressionist style. As a celebrator of beauty, and especially feminine sensuality, Herbert Read said that "Renoir is the final representative of a tradition which runs directly from Rubens to Watteau". He was the father of filmmaker Jean Renoir.
