It's Pierre-Auguste Renoir's Birthday. Renoir is one of the most famous painters of all time. He helped to establish the movement known as Impressionism—a movement in which painters didn't use their careful and precise brush strokes to exactly copy reality, but instead used looser, more visible brush strokes to convey movement and emotion. Artists began to show their own personal impressions of reality.

Renoir's paintings include many happy scenes such as people dancing or rowing on a lake or dining and laughing together.

Mandy pig strolled into one of the images... she feels that she enhances the previously empty space!!

Thanks to every-day-is-special.blogspot.co.uk for sharing the information.

I didn't manage to make any more of these puzzles prior to going on holiday... so that's your lot until I return!!!

Here are the links to last year's WK puzzles for the relevant dates...

Welcome back!!!

So sorry everyone - I really didn't mean to stay away for so long, it's been one thing after another!! I just logged in for the first time today and found that someone has complained about one of my Who Knew puzzles, I'm not sure which one, but Stefan left me a message to say it has been removed, I would like to find out why - apparently there was a complaint about the text!! I'm going to see if I can find out more from Stefan, and in the meantime I may just visit some of you before I start posting puzzles again.

Sunday, April 6. I just had a contact with Mandy. Here is what she asked me to put up for her.
I want to let people know that I am still alive, but having to take some time out to concentrate on my family commitments. I do hope to return eventually

I unfortunately have lost track of your who know-puzzles, being away so often. But I did notice, that there were none for a few days. This worried me a bit...what relieve to find out, that you had a well deserved holiday. I hope you are having fun and nice weather.

Thanks for an artistic day Mandy! You just have fun and relaxation on your holiday now! We'll be here when you get back all rejuvenated. Thanks for putting in the daily links for us to enjoy some reruns! :>)

Have a great holiday. You have more than earned it.

Thanks everyone, I'm glad you enjoyed it today. Sorry to confuse you Arleen!! I'm off to enjoy the rest of my holiday and will leave you all playing here. See you when I get back ;~)

Initially, all I read was that it is Renoir's birthday. Then I solved the puzzle and noticed something in the picture of A Girl With A Watering Can. Completely confused, I got up and went into the dining room to look at our family's copy of the oil painting--one of my favorites of all time. Had I read your comments first there would have been no confusion. Well played. Stay safe on holiday. Arleen
