Arts Everyday Living: Through the Eyes of Renoir—A Memory of the South of France

Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Springtime in Essoyes, c. 1900, oil on canvas,, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indianapolis, IN

French Impressionist master Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) spent his later years in the south of France, seeking a warmer climate for his chronic rheumatoid arthritis.  Springtime in Essoyes was painted near his home, artistic proof of Renoir’s ability to continue creating in spite of his increasing disability.
