      Two Sisters: Pierre Auguste Renoir’s (1841 – 1919) art celebrates life’s temporal pleasures, the ‘here and now’ of his time, more than any other Impressionist artist. Preferring to paint his friends and lovers, his masterful depictions of their candid facial features and body stances convey the youthful spirit and intimate charm that ignited the feeling of an Eden of earthly pleasures. His portrayal of luminous color, skillfully varied brushstrokes, nuances of light and shadow all worked together to form a warm sensuality that made him a leader of the Impressionist movement.

    “William-Adolphe Bouguerau (La Rochelle 1825 – id. 1905)” French academic painter, in his realistic genre, he used mythological themes, making modern interpretations of Classical subjects, with an emphasis on the female body. The idealized world of his paintings appealed to wealthy art patrons. His careful method resulted in a pleasing and accurate rendering of the human form. Considered to be one of the greatest painters in the world by the Academic art, and reviled by the avant-garde.
