Dancing with Renoir Art Museum Oil Painting by k Madison Moore

Dancing with Renoir

Inspired by Pierre - Auguste Renoir

Art  Museum Collection Series
11 x 14   Museum Oil Painting on Canvas


Painting with an artist like Renoir is a challenge to me. Not trying to really duplicate
his work but  doing my own impression. However, working with the impressionist
style is the real challenge. My usual work is so detailed and impressionism is so loose.
I think I did well with this piece. It has been sketched for about a year. I had to really be
in the mode for a challenge to paint this one.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir (February 25, 1841 – December 3, 1919) was a leading french painter in that  Impressionist movement.
Renoir was born in Limonges, France, and was the child of a working-class factory. As a child, he worked in a porcelain factory where his drawing talents led to his deigning the prints on fine china. Before officially beginning his artist training, he painted hangings for overseas missionaries and decorations on fans.
A prolific artist, he created several thousand paintings. The warm sensuality of Renoir's style made his paintings some of the most well-known and frequently-reproduced works in the history of art. The single largest collection of his works—181 paintings in all—is at the Barnes Foundation, in Philadelphia Pennsylvania.
