Rita Renoir was/is a French nude model, actress and 'art' stripteaseuse, known in Paris as the "tragedian of strippers."

Her first serious work was with the happenings and mise-en-scènes of Jean-Jacques Lebel (Picasso's Le désir attrapé par la queue), and her first critical success was in the film Les Immortelles by Bourgeade. She also starred in Pierre Koralnik's film Cannabis.

She also worked with Michel Simon and starred in The Red Desert as Emilia, and worked as a choreographer on Le Pacha.

She played herself in Sois belle et tais-toi.

Flemish writer Freddy de Vree wrote an article about her, so did the South-American Julio Cortázar (Homenaje a una joven bruja).
