Yep, it's birthday time. Today's? Pierre-Auguste Renoir, probably most famous these days for an 1881 painting, Le Déjeuner des canotiers, a work recreated over and over by old man Dufayel in Amélie.
Unlike for an author, I can't exactly toss up a link about purchasing a celebrated painter's work -- unless you've got a few extra hundred million lying about -- but what I can do is toss up a link about purchasing a book about a painter and his or her work. Smart, huh. I knew that college edumacation would pay off someday, bringing me vast gobs of capitalist scratch in the process.
