Art Brokerage: Paul Renard French Artist: b. 1871-1920. The art of Paul Renard, who was born in 1871, can best described as a true love story. He remained faithful his entire live to painting the soft scenes that he saw around him as a boy of the bustling sidewalks of Paris. He applied his sensitive and consuming fascination, with seeking to capture the beauty of French city life and country rivers on canvas as he saw them right up until his recent death. Renard wanted other to sense, see and feel what he spent his life adoring. Also, as in the greatest of love stories, Renard patiently studied and savored every nuance of his chosen affection. From the magnificence of lush river scenes of his birthplace in La Grenouillere, to the life swollen Parisian streets, his magic brush strokes entice the viewer to experience the evanenscence of the life he knew.
