Pierre-August Renoir — another example of sisu

“The pain passes, but the beauty remains.”

~ Renoir



Claude Monet — an example of sisu?

It was not the best time in Monet’s life. His second wife and eldest son had both died in the previous few years, and his eyesight was getting progressively worse due to cataracts. But despite the emotional and physical setbacks, Monet would soon rebound, making the last decade of his life (he died in 1926 at the age of 86) an extremely productive period in which he painted many of his most famous studies of water lilies.
