Pierre-Auguste Renoir was a French artist who was a leader in developing the Impressionist style. Born in 1841 to a tailor, his family moved to Paris which allowed Renoir to often visit the Louvre when he was a young man working as an apprentice in a porcelain factory. Later he studied art and joined forces with Monet, Sisley, Pissarro, and several other artists to mount the first Impressionist exhibition in April 1874. Hoping to attract commissions, Renoir began to specialize in portraits and within a few years became recognized as a serious painter. In 1890, he married Aline Victorine Charigot, who, along with a number of his other friends including Gustave Caillebotte, had already served as a model for Le Déjeuner des canotiers - Luncheon of the Boating Party. They had 3 sons. Renoir developed rheumatoid arthritis in his later years and changed his painting style to accommodate this condition. Prior to his death in 1919, he visited the Louvre to see his works displayed there.
