Pierre-Auguste Renoir (French, 1841–1919) is one of the most well-loved painters in the history of modern art. Mostly he painted landscapes in the south of France, scenes of his family, and portraits. He painted in the impressionist style—you can clearly see his brushstrokes in his pictures. He also was an expert with color and knew how to properly combine his paints to come up with exactly the right color combinations.
You will find twenty-two of Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s paintings in this soft cover coloring book. They are shown as small pictures on the inside front and back covers. When you color in the line drawings, you could copy the originals, or you might prefer to create your own color combinations. We’ve left the last page of this coloring book blank so that you can draw and color a picture of your own. Will it be a portrait, a landscape, a picture of your house and family, or something wholly from your imagination?
Size: 8½ x 11 in.
