Renoir's works are accompanied by life’s unseen elements, revived by the artist through his motif. His landscape paintings, in particular, are much more than an atmospheric convergence of natural elements. Through a sense of the intangible, Renoir created an interaction between that which is visible and his perception thereof, combining the two with a play of colours and light to bring his works to life.
