The nineteenth offering in our new ART WALK Series features a painting by Pierre-Auguste Renoir entitled "Strawberries". From one medium to the next, artists express their use of colour. Inspired by Renoir, our dyer has successfully captured the excitement and complexity of the painting.
Living in the moment and indulging in life’s temporal pleasures were among Pierre-Auguste Renoir favorite themes, and he expressed them more than any other Impressionist. A renowned leader of the Impressionist movement, Renoir (1841 – 1919) enjoyed depicting his friends and lovers with expressive candor, conveying a youthful exuberance and intimate charm that suggests visions of an earthly paradise. By focusing on the ‘here and now’ of his time, these fleeting moments become relished nostalgic memories. Renoir’s portrayal of luminous color, skillfully varied brushstrokes, nuances of light and shadow all worked together to form a warm sensuality. [quoted from Art.com]
