Renoir Modernized
Contest Directions: February 25 is the birthday of a French artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir who was a leading painter in the development of the Impressionist style. Renoir is considered a celebrator of beauty, and especially feminine sensuality, and it has been said that "Renoir is the final representative of a tradition which runs directly from Rubens to Watteau". Renoir was born in a working-class French family. During his childhood years, Pierre-Auguste worked in a porcelain factory where his drawing talents led to him being chosen to paint designs on fine china. He then started painting hangings for overseas missionaries and decorations on fans before finally deciding to enroll in art school.
Photoshop any painting by Pierre-Auguste Renoir to include some modern elements in it. Think of product placements, celebrities, modern architecture, and even sci-fi features, etc. and show how Renoir paintings would be different if he painted them in the modern days. Note: If you use any of Renoir's paintings with "nude subjects", please cover them up with bikini before submitting.
