They grab whatever's within reach - paper, modeling clay, old rags, bits of wood or cardboard - and they shape, fold, paint, carve, cut nail, or glue them together... ot they sign my name, which you may very well know..."

Surely, you can see at once that I am a painter. I am so pleased that you have come to spend the weekend with me, to hear me talk about myself and my friends - they are painters also. What I am about to tell you is my own true story - the story of my life and my work. You will have to step back with me into the past - before you were born, yes, but not so very long ago. Let me introduce myself to you. My name is Pierre-Auguste Renoir."
