Story
Introduction
My name is Pierre-Auguste Renoir. I was born on February 25, 1841 in Limoges, France.I am a painter. My early works were impressionist shots. Later I developed paintings that were portraits and figure paintings. I started by working in a porcelain factory. After that I learned to draw bouquets on the porcelain. I then saved up some money to take painting lessons at the École des Beaux-Arts and Studio of Charles Gleyre. At the École des Beaux-Arts I met my lifelong friends Alfred Sisley, Claude Monet Frederic Bazille.
