'The work of art must seize upon you, wrap you up in itself and carry you away. It is the means by which the artist conveys his passion. It is the current which he puts forth, which sweeps you along in his passion. The pain passes, the beauty remains.' (Pierre-Auguste Renoir)

|Pierre Auguste Renoir Brief Biography|
Pierre Auguste Renoir (b. Feb. 25, 1841, Limoges, France--d. Dec. 3, 1919, Cagnes) was a French painter originally associated with the Impressionist movement. His early works were typically Impressionist snapshots of real life, full of sparkling colour and light. By the mid-1880s, however, he had broken with the movement to apply a more disciplined, formal technique to portraits and figure paintings, particularly of women (e.g. , Bathers, 1884-87).

About the painting, 'Oarsmen at Chatou' (1879)
Renoir's paintings show vibrant light and color, and harmony of lines. Unlike many impressionists who focused on landscapes, he painted not only landscapes, but people in intimate and candid compositions—sometimes applying paint with a palette knife rather than a brush. Characteristic of impressionism style, Renoir painted not the details of a scene, but instead his figures softly fuse with one another and the surroundings. In his paintings from the late 1880s, the figures and scenery look more distinct from one another, but the paintings of his final years again display the softness.

YOUR SHOP KEEPER: KARENE
My partner (philosopher Geoff Haselhurst) and I are building a large
philosophy website which is the source (and inspiration) for most of
the Philosophy images and quotes in this shop.
Below are some of our favourite philosophers / quotes and links to relevant
pages of our website. Philosophy (which is ultimately about Wisdom from
Truth and Reality) is important to our world (all proceeds from this
shop are used to promote our work on Philosophy).
Thus we also hope that you find our philosophy website interesting!
Cheers, Karene. (August, 2010)
