Jean Renoir - Born in France in 1894 to famous painter (Pierre-Auguste) ‘Renoir’, Jean was drawn to the art of film. In the early 1920s, Renoir began making his own silent films, financed by the sale of his father’s paintings he had inherited.
In the early 1930s Renoir forayed into sound films, and began achieving success in the industry.
A political artist, much Hollywood material did not appeal to Jean; however, he went on to helm many praised works, and was nominated for a Best Director Oscar for 1945’s The Southerner. Jean Renoir died in 1979.
