Vase of Flowers, 1886: Canvas Replica Painting: Large
Item#DA4653
By artist Pierre Auguste Renoir (1841-1919), in a Private Collection
With a masterful and balanced symmetry, this elegantly lit portrait of a summer-lush bouquet draws the eye in a serpentine angle through the sun and shadow of midday. Painted during a period when Renoir explored a return to classicism, this nod toward the formal still life is a delightful departure that showcases an Impressionist's skill at rendering light and color. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its bold brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. Our replica European style, bright gold-toned, ribbed frame is cast in quality designer resin with an acanthus leaf and floret border that draws the eye toward the beautiful image.
Large: 32.25"Wx40.25"H. framed (24.25"Wx32.25"H. image size, 4"W. frame)

   Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919)




French painter originally associated with the Impressionist movement. His early works were typically Impressionist snapshots of real life, full of sparkling color and light. By the mid-1880s, however, he had broken with the movement to apply a more disciplined, formal technique to portraits and figure paintings, particularly of women.

In 1854 he began work as a painter in a porcelain factory in Paris, gaining experience with the light, fresh colors that were to distinguish his Impressionist work and also learning the importance of good craftsmanship. In 1862 he entered the studio of Gleyre and there formed a lasting friendship with Monet, Sisley, and Bazille. His relationship with Monet was particularly close at this time, and their paintings of the beauty spot called La Grenouillre done in 1869 are regarded as the classic early statements of the Impressionist style. Like Monet, Renoir endured much hardship early in his career, but he began to achieve success as a portraitist in the late 1870s and was freed from financial worries after the dealer Paul Durand-Ruel began buying his work regularly in 1881
