Child Reading aka Enfant Lisant, Renoir, circa 1890-1893, Barnes Foundation, in Public Domain.jpeg

Wonderful example of Impressionism. Renoir’s use of color, with his curvilinear brush strokes describing not only the subject, but mood and emotions. Renoir’s imaginative use of color, brush strokes, and composition exemplified the inventiveness and influence of the Impressionists. See also Degas’ ballerinas, Monet and Renoir’s landscapes, dramatic expressionistic colors and strokes from Van Gogh to start. Check out Pinterest for many great art works. Have fun!
