The Life and Work of Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Lydia Bauman
Wednesday 19 July 2017

Lydia is a Polish-born artist and art historian, a passionate educator whose teaching is informed by her own understanding of the artist’s craft. Today she offers an in-depth study of the life and work of French Impressionist artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919). Born in Limoges, he began as a painter on porcelain and fans, later painting in the open air and obtaining a number of commissions for portraits.  From 1874-82 he exhibited with the Impressionists and is recognised as a major artist in that style.
