My history crush is Pierre Auguste Renoir - don’t know if he’s been up here before but he’s always been a favorite painter of mine, my Art History professor in high school always told us to remember him as the “Happy Impressionist” due to how he used little to no black paint in his works.
I ran into this wonderful portrait of a young Renoir modeling the latest Paris fashions for men by Frédéric Bazille, another impressionist painter and a friend of Renoir, at the Impressionism, Fashion and Modernity exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Anyone who is a fan of fashion or impressionism should check it out - here’s a preview:
