Hand painted oil reproduction of a famous Renoir painting, The Seine at Chatou. Today it has been carefully recreated detail-by-detail, color-by-color to near perfection.
born in Limoges on February 25, 1841, Pierre Auguste Renoir used to worke in a porcelain factory in Paris, painting designs on china. He studied painting formally in 1862-63 at the academy of the Swiss painter Charles Gabriel Gleyre in Paris. In the 1870's Renoir's Impressionist technique reached its peak, with glorious accomplishment. His fully defined technique rendered facial expressions and movements masterfully. He spent weeks and sometimes months perfecting his paintings.
