Renoir’s style was impressionist. He delighted in the effect of sunshine filtering through trees, dappling revellers in its light. Near the end of his life, Renoir finally found a style which was a combination of impressionism and the older styles. Renoir was one of the co-founders of impressionism, a style in quick brush strokes are employed. His paintings are notable for their vibrant light and saturated colour. The female nude was one of his primary subjects.
