We continue to go around the Carnegie Museum of Art and come across works by Pierre-Auguste Renoir (French 1841-1919).  He has richly painted figures that sparkle with color.  Renoir was a core member of the  Impressionist group exhibiting at 4 of the 8 exhibitions.  This painting was called “Bathers With Crab” from 1890-1899.  The top young girl was teasing the others with a seaside crab.

The same work showing the entire frame also as it appears much different:

There was another work by Renoir that I nearly walked by because it was not typical of his work to me being a landscape called: “The Garden in the Rue Cortot, Montmartre” 1876.

The gentlemen depicted are thought to be Monet and Renior himself.
