Portrait of Jean Renoir - one of my husband's favorite directors and son of Piere-Auguste Renoir I've only seen his film "The River."
I feel like he most of had an affair with Gabrielle (she is in the above painting). He paints her a million times and she's always half naked.
I liked the plein air work the best and sometimes I was bothered by the crazy proportions on the figurative work which is very conservative of me (I know - I'm sorry). I fell out of love with the impressionists in my twenties and though I know there is much to learn from them the pinky skin is too much for me. Although it is thought provoking. I liked the sculptures very much and did believe the work served as a bridge to Cubism. I do want to go back and look at the landscape painting and see if there is anything that I may want to incorporate into my own work.
