Renoir is renowned for his studies of the feminine form, portrayed always with vibrance and blended brush-strokes. It may take some getting used to, but  the man was crucial to the development of Impressionism.
Consistent in the core of his work is a profound celebration of candid human beauty and sensual intimacy, with an acute sense for light, shadow and composition.
Unlike the other Impressionists, Renoir began to experiment with Renaissance styles and influences after visiting Italy. He was captivated by the way the old masters portrayed characters in grand frescoes inside cathedrals.
If it’s not for you, you’re not alone.
In fact, you are welcome to take up arms against him in a movement determined to banish his works from galleries across the globe: @RenoirSucksAtPainting
