George Renouard American, 1884-1954
George Renouard was an American painter born in 1884. He studied at Pratt Institute and Erasmus Hall, and had a studio in the Lower East Side in New York City. His father came into wealth when he created some sort of embalming fluid, which allowed Renouard to pursue his passion for painting.
Known best for his landscape paintings, his forty year career saw him explore cityscapes, seascapes, and rural areas. In addition to these, he also depicted figures of the less fortunate in society. Today, his works can be found in the National Library of Congress, Brooklyn Museum, and the NY Public Library, among other places.
