About Aline Victorine Renoir (Charigot)

Aline Charigot was the wife of Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir. She was born in the French village of Essoyes on the 23rd of May 1854.

Charigot met Renoir in 1880 and they were married on 14 April 1890. She bore him three children: Pierre, Jean, and Claude. She was a dressmaker by profession, but frequently modeled for Auguste both before and after their marriage. The love of his life, she was immortalized by Renoir in many of his paintings, most notably "The Luncheon of the Boating Party" and "Dance in the Country".

Although she was 23 years younger than her husband, she died at Nice on 27 June 1915, four years before Auguste. Aline was buried in the Churchyard in Essoyes, where the family lived when they were not in Paris or Cagnes. She was joined there by her husband after his death in 1919.
