“Why shouldn’t art be pretty?
There are enough unpleasant things in the world.”

On this day in 1841, a leading figure of the Impressionist movement was born – Pierre-Auguste Renoir. The French painter’s works are some of the most popular, well-recognized and frequently reproduced images in the history of art.
