Auctioning a beautiful museum, oil and tempera painting of a two women depicted in opera. The painting appears to have a gallery stamp on verso, or it may be the name of the previous collector, it reads Le Pavilion. , and has a collection reference number next to it. The painting is also baring signature "Renoir", in the lower right, which may point to the Impressionist artist. Gallery stamp, and reference number on verso.
The present work reveals Renoir's considerable abilities as a portraitist, through a delicately rendered image that at once touches upon the more recent artistic experiments of Paul Cézanne (multiple points of view) and Henri Matisse (large planes of color), while retaining Renoir's structure, coloration, and impressionistic application of paint. An interesting and unique find we acquired in an UK estate sale with two other impressionist works from the same collection. Condition: as pictured, aging, no restoration required.Dimensions: 22.5 x 20.1 cm. The painting has a reference number marked on verso, which in our opinion belong to the previous collections this artwork was part of. Pierre-Auguste Renoir was a French Impressionist painter whose eye for beauty made him one of the movement's most popular practitioners.
He is best known for his paintings of bustling Parisian modernity and leisure in the last three decades of the nineteenth century. Though celebrated as a colorist with a keen eye for capturing the movement of light and shadow, Renoir started to explore Renaissance painting in the middle of his career, which led him to integrate more line and composition into his mature works and create some of his era's most timeless canvases.
