Pierre-Auguste Renoir is one of artist Jay Rolfe's favorite painters. The Barnes Foundation in Merion PA has the world's largest collection of Renoir paintings, 181, which is way more than the second largest collection of 35 at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown Mass. Today's photo is Renoir's "Mother And Child." I love Renoir's portraits, the quality of the skin and how he captures the soul of the sitter.
This is the latest step of artist Jay Rolfe on his Journey From Starving Artist To 21st Century Picasso. You may view some of Jay Rolfe's unique artistic idea, his 3-D Shaped Stretched Canvas paintings, on his website at http://www.3dssc.com/.
