Pierre-Auguste Renoir

Wishfully romanticising and elevating his subjects, he depicts general congeniality in a time of great contention. He often aimed to capture the changing light and color in nature and convey the immediacy of the moment on canvas. I take away that he shows humanity at it's finest and most joyous, even encouraging it. "Why shouldn't art be pretty? There are enough unpleasant things in the world." - Pierre-Auguste Renoir
