Auguste Renoir


Il n'y a qu'une chose qui intéresse l'homme,  c'est la femme. 

Renoir was noted for his radiant, intimate paintings, particularly of the female nude.

In the domain of the form he inaugurated a type of feminine beauty that was entirely original, fresh, delicious, with round and golden shapes, emanating from a world of temptation.

This revelation disconcerted a long time his contemporaries, before it started to delight them.

In the meantime the renown page of Marcel Proust became widely known: "Des femmes passent dans la rue, différentes de celles d'autrefois, puisque ce sont des Renoir, ces Renoir où nous nous refusions jadis à voir des femmes.

"Women go across the streets, different from those in former days, while they are of Renoir, those Renoir who we refused previously to see as women."
