Watch Pierre-Auguste Renoir Painting
min Read4 December 2016
In this unique film created a few years before his death, Pierre-Auguste Renoir is painting and smoking. During this period of his life, Renoir worked in constant pain due to severe rheumatoid arthritis, a condition that left him unable to walk, with a permanently clenched hand, and near-paralyzed. When asked by Henri Matisse why he kept painting, Renoir replied, "The pain passes, but the beauty remains."
