Pierre-Auguste Renoir

Dance at Bougival (1883)


Beyond The Frame

Episode Six

Pierre Auguste Renoir was a tale of rags to riches, and his modest beginnings could be the catalyst behind his success. Known for his celebration of colour, vibrancy, and the human candor, Renoir went from an artist struggling to pay for paint, to then turning that paint into tens of thousands of dollars.

Renoir channels the human experience in Dance at Bougival by candidly capturing the joy and freedom the dancers found at Bougival, perhaps a skill he learned in his former years, to find beauty in the smallest details.
