Renoir’s health began failing in the early 1900s, and he spent most of his remaining years in the south of France. In 1907, he bought property near Nice, France, where he lived until his death. Despite his physical limitations due to severe rheumatism, he continued to paint still lifes, portraits, and landscapes of the area. Like Monet, he used a fairly limited color palette, usually five to seven pigments, to create his complex, yet subtle, color relationships.
