Renoir Artist Study

I have been neglecting Artist Study, or I could say I have not been working on the artists that are posted in the Ambleside Online schedule.  If I had been, I would be on the Term 2 artist and painting selections: 

2012-2013 TERM 2 Jacob van Ruisdael (1628/9-1682) and Pieter de Hooch (1629-1684) (This term's composer: Bach)

   1. Two Watermills and an Open Sluice near Singraven, 1650-52, National Gallery, London
   2. View of Haarlem with Bleaching Grounds, c.1665, Kunsthaus, Zurich
   3. Windmill at Wijk bij Duurstede, c. 1670, Rijksmuseum Amsterdam
Pieter de Hooch (Dutch, 1629-after 1684)
   4. Courtyard of a House in Delft, 1658, National Gallery, London
   5. Woman Peeling Apples, c. 1663, Wallace Collection, London
   6. At the Linen Closet, also here, 1663, Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

These paintings have been very nicely posted on The Little Homeschool Blessings blog.  

But, since, sadly, I have skipped the first AO term, and since that term's artist, Renior, is not to be missed, I am going to highlight the selected Renior paintings for term 1:

2012-2013 TERM 1 Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) French Impressionist (This term's composer: Debussy)

   1. La Grenouilliere, 1869, Nationalmuseum, Stockholm
