“Art is about emotion; if art needs to be explained it is no longer art. ” – Pierre-Auguste Renoir

This is a wonderful group of quality framed art prints, just a few of the some 4,000 or so paintings Renoir created in his lifetime.  

For those who want to learn more about this master, you can find great discussions of various paintings at http://www.renoir.net.  I’ve included some snippets below.

Enjoy!

#1. Blonde Girl Combing Her Hair. 1894.

I’ve also seen this listed as Young Girl with Red Hair. I’m not certain of the exact title.  It is very sweet and lovely, however.

Condition: Professionally framed in metal gold tone, and in excellent condition.
Price:  $35.00. Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $1.93 for a total of $36.93. 

#2. Gabrielle. Date, uncertain.

Gabrielle Renard (August 1, 1878 – February 26, 1959) was a French woman who became an important member of Renoir’s family, first becoming their nanny, and subsequently a frequent model for the artist.

#3. Dance at Bougival. 1883.

Dance at Bougival is currently in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.  It has been described as “one of the museum’s most beloved works”. 

According to Wiki:  “The painting depicts two dancers in the village of Bougival, surrounded by a lively scene of café goers. The actual subjects of the painting are disputed, but regardless it is well known for the appearance that they are in motion, making the viewer feel that they are actually there. Renoir uses mostly pastel colors in the painting, but he includes a vibrant pop in the hats of the both of the subjects.”

Dimensions:  30″H x 20″W
Condition:  Professionally framed in metal gold tone, and in excellent condition.
Price:  $35.00. Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $1.93 for a total of $36.93. 

#4. Girl with Watering Can. 1876.

An impressionist work, which was apparently painted in Claude Monet’s famous garden at Argenteuil, and may portray one of the girls in Renoir’s neighborhood in a blue dress holding a water can.  

The painting is exhibited at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

Dimensions:  28″H x 22″ W
Condition:
Professionally framed in metal gold tone, and in excellent condition.
Price:  $35.00. Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $1.93 for a total of $36.93. 

#5. In the Meadow. 1888-1892.

Between 1888 and 1892 Renoir painted a number of works in which the same pair of girls—the blonde wearing a white frock and the brunette a pink one—engage in leisurely pastimes.

Dimensions:  28″H x 22″ W
Condition: Professionally framed in metal gold tone, and in excellent condition.
Price:  $35.00. Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $1.93 for a total of $36.93. 

#6. Woman at the Piano. 1875-76.

From Renoir.net:  “Renoir was one of the most dedicated figure painters among the Impressionists.  Enveloping his subjects, who were usually female, in an aura of fantasy and sensuality, he created a confident, immensely appealing art. Like Manet, Mary Cassatt, and others, Renoir often painted women in domestic interiors, either daydreaming or reading. In this painting, he depicted for the first time a model playing the piano, a subject to which he would frequently return.”

Dimensions: The piece is in storage, and I have to dig it out! My memory is that it’s probably about 22″W x 36″H, although I could be waaaay off.
Condition: The frame seems to be made of the same or a similar material as “sirocco” mirror framing and other decor. The print is loose in this frame. Otherwise, it’s in good condition.
Price:
  $20.00.  Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $1.10 for a total o $21.10.

#7. Young Girls at the Piano. 1892.

From Renoir.net:  “In this picture, Young Girls at the Piano, we have a detailed and felicitous account of the surroundings of French family life at the end of the nineteenth century, and yet it does not break down into a clutter of things asking for attention. We see the piano with its candle holders, the chairs, the tasseled draperies, and in the room beyond we get a glimpse of a stuffy but inviting confusion. We may study the costumes and the hairdos the girls wear, and on the piano is a typical “old-fashioned” bouquet of the time..”

Dimensions: About 17″W x 20″H.
Condition:
The wood frame and matting appear to have been professionally done, although the outside piece of backing has come off. Otherwise, the piece is in excellent condition.
Price:
  $30.00.  Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $1.65 for a total of $31.65.
