"Why shouldn't art be pretty? There are enough unpleasant things in the world."

Some of his most famous works include "Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette", "Luncheon of the Boating Party" & "Bal au moulin de la Galette, Montmartre and The Bathers." Renior was closely associated with fellows artists Claude Monet, Alfred Sisley, Frederic Bazille, Henry Fantin-Latour, Camile Pissarro, and Paul Cezanne which would end up forming the Impressionist group.
