“When I've painted a woman's bottom so that I want to touch it, then [the painting] is finished.” -- Pierre-Auguste Renoir During the course of his long career, Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841 – 1919) turned from outdoor, public scenes to more intimate, timeless subjects. In his later works Renoir often focused on people, particularly women, in intimate and candid compositions, and though he favored the female nude, he painted many warmly sensual depictions of scenes from domestic life. (http://www.art.com/products/p12965425-sa-i2200212/pierre-auguste-renoir-reading-woman-circa-1900.htm?rfid=220421) Originally associated with the Impressionists, Renoir broke from the movement to experiment with a more disciplined, formal technique but soon returned to his earlier use of thinly brushed color to dissolve outlines so that his figures softly fuse with one another and their surroundings. Renoir’s later works are both grander and simpler than his early style (and the female type he preferred became more mature and ample).
