Quick Overview

Product Description

Renoir's Luncheon of the Boating Party (1880-1881, Oil on Canvas, Acquired 1923) not only conveys the light-hearted leisurely mood of the Maison Fournaise, but also reflects the character of mid to late-nineteenth century French social structure. The restaurant welcomed
customers of many classes including bourgeois businessmen, society women, artists (Renoir
and Caillebotte), actresses, writers (Guy de Maupassant), critics and, with the new, shorter
work week – a result of the industrial revolution – seamstresses and shop girls. Includes a remarkable storycard showing the painting in two versions: a full mage and another showing the sides of the cube traced on the original, with descriptions of each vignette.
