About Pierre Auguste Renoir

Impressionist Artist Pierre Auguste Renoir was born in Limoges, France, on February 25, 1841, the sixth of Leonard Renoir and Marguerite Merlet’s seven children. Renoir’s father was a tailor, and his mother was a dressmaker. The Renoir family moved to Paris in 1844. Showing a remarkable talent for drawing, Pierre-Auguste Renoir became an apprentice in a porcelain factory where Renoir painted designs on fine art china. After the factory had gone out of business, Pierre Renoir worked for his older brother, decorating fine art fans, blinds and signs. Throughout these early years Pierre Auguste Renoir made frequent visits to the Louvre where Renoir studied and developed a deep respect for the art of 18th Century French Rococo Masters.
