Renoir, Pierre-Auguste. 1841-1919

Landscape. Le Cannett

France, 1902

Renoir visited the Cote d'Azur in 1902 and here he painted his house at Le Cannet, near Cannes. Landscape occupies an important place in the artist's work not simply as a component in portrait or genre subjects, but also as an independent theme. Renoir painted both urban and rural landscapes and like his fellow Impressionists he worked in the open air, seeking to capture transitory effects of nature and weather. Rejecting his hard style of the 1880s, Renoir developed a particular free and fluid painting manner, which we can see here in the picture of Le Cannet. The temperamental brushstrokes and rich colour scheme express that joyous attitude to life which never left Renoir, even in his later years.
