Park West Gallery proudly offers artwork from Alexandre Renoir, a talented artist following in the footsteps of his great-grandfather, French Impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir.

“Park West is full of history, an organization that for many years has brought us beauty in art from all over the world,” Alexandre says. “It is my absolute pleasure to be a part of it.”

Pierre-Auguste Renoir changed the course of art history due to his influence on the Impressionist movement. Eight decades after the legendary artist’s death, his great-grandson has taken up the easel to continue that legacy.

Unlike traditional Impressionism, Alexandre uses a palette knife to apply bright colors and thick, bold textures. In his words, “It’s like sculpting a painting.”

The artist enjoys painting landscapes and colorful florals. He takes to heart his great-grandfather’s philosophy: “To my mind, a picture should be something pleasant, cheerful, and pretty, yes pretty! There are too many unpleasant things in life as it is without creating still more of them.”

Born in Cagnes Sur Mer, France in 1974, Alexandre demonstrated artistic talent at a young age. At the age of 4, Alexandre and his family moved to Canada, where he attended the Virginia Park School for the artistically gifted and Victoria School for the Arts and Performance. He familiarized himself with various mediums, including painting, printmaking, jewelry making and sculpture.

Alexandre explored many different branches of the art world, including goldsmithing, silversmithing, graphic arts and design, photography, and theater arts. No matter what he did, it never seemed to be the perfect fit.

In 2004, a publisher offered Alexandre the opportunity to become a full-time painter. Alexandre realized this was the path meant for him and became the Renoir family’s first professional painter since Pierre-Auguste.

Alexandre calls himself the “family gossip.” The artist loves sharing stories about his lineage that didn’t make it into the history books. He says the world is full of stories, and he is looking forward to exchanging many tales with Park West collectors.

“I’ve always sought [stories] out and revel in the beauty of people’s lives, past and present. To be here, now, is a great honor,” Alexandre says. “May we all welcome life and beauty into our hearts.”

Alexandre’s art is collected around the globe, and was featured in the Tennessee State Museum during its “Strokes of Genius” exhibition. For information on how to collect artwork by Alexandre Renoir, contact Park West Gallery at (800) 521-9654 ext. 4 or sales@parkwestgallery.com.
