"RENOIR: The Magic of Childhood" is an unusual introduction to Pierre-Auguste Renoir's art. Thematically centered on Renoir's family and friends, many of the illustrations portray children. Selected to appeal to the young reader, they offer an intimate glimpse into the life of this extraordinary man.
Renoir was one of the founders of the Impressionist movement that developed in France in the latter half of the 19th century. The impressionists introduced a radical style of painting that used short strokes and dabs of paint to convey the changing quality of light.
Renoir's art conveys his pleasure in everyday things, his love of his family and friends, and his profound enjoyment of life, despite the many difficulties he faced and overcame.
