Happy 174th birthday, Pierre-Auguste Renoir. This exhibit from The National Gallery in London gives a brief biography of Renoir, focusing on the influences of other artists on his approach to painting. View twelve of his paintings that are part of the gallery’s collection. Each painting can be examined closely by using the magnifying glass tool. You can read about the subject matter of the individual paintings, find out about the medium Renoir used for the painting, and see the size. You can probably get a closer look at each painting on this site than you could at the museum’s exhibit.
