How many paintings did Pierre-Auguste Renoir paint altogether?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
Hi! I found this:
"In a career spanning 60 years, Pierre Auguste Renoir executed more than 4000 paintings."
AUGUSTE RENOIR - CATALOGUE RAISONNE DE L’ŒUVRE PEINT Editions Durand-Ruel, Lausanne, 1971
"Volume 1 : Figures, 1860-1890"
In The Burlington Magazine for Connoiseurs: "Rembrandt Problems" by Roger Fry, it states, when comparing Renoir's to Rubens output of five hundred and fifty paintings:
"Renoir's oeuvre certainly runs into the thousands."
I Hope this helps!

ok, I looked online at the biography pages and it said he painted for some 40 years. I then looked at a related website biography of Renoir & his work and it had a gallery of 235 images. I cannot guarantee that there aren't more prints to be counted but the artist definitely went thru 3 or more periods of his art so the number of overall works completed and still in existance today should be a large number indeed.Source(s): sorry I couldn't be more help. I will look online again and try and get a definite answer here's the website I looked at after Googling Renoir. http://www.renoir.org.yu/gallery.asp
