Pierre-August Renoir (1841-1919) made only slight variations to his rather consistent signature. The painter usually signed with just his surname "Renoir" sometimes adding the year the painting was completed.
In a few cases he just used his first initial "R." Renoir often added a period after his name and the date: "Renoir." "1881." Variations include the formation of the letters (which were always in cursive) and the thickness of his writing. His written or etched signature, for example, differs from his painted signature.
