Jean, son of Auguste Renoir, is shown here in army uniform for the war (1914-18); he will make his anti-war famous movie, La grande Illusion, in 1937.
This photo also shows how handicapped Auguste Renoir was in his last years; he will paint until his death (in 1919), his paintbrushes tied to his hand.
Matisse on Renoir
Renoir’s nature, through his modesty as well as his confidence in life, once the effort was made, allowed him to reveal himself with all the generosity in his being, which remained undiminished by afterthoughts. Viewing his work lets us see an artist who has been blessed with the greatest gifts, who has had the gratitute to respect them.
- Henri Matisse, written for the catalogue of a French art exhibition in Oslo, 1918 (the year before Renoir died).
