Little Irene - Renoir
I have for sale a truly lovely LITHOGRAPH MAJESTICALLY FRAMED of "IRENE CAHEN d'ANVERS" by PIERRE AUGUSTE RENOIR also known as "Little Irene" or "The Little Girl With the Blue Ribbon" (originally painted by RENOIR by commission in 1880). Irene was the eight year old daughter of French Banker Louis CAHEN d'Anvers. Somehow Renoir captured little Irene in a very sullen mood. She seems to express that the end of her world has come. Surely she would rather be anywhere else besides posing for Renoir!
This gorgeous print is framed and ready to hang. The print is 12"x 15-1/2" without the frame while the massive frame measures 16-3/4"x 20-3/4".
This fine lithograph was beautifully created on heavy board stock with simulated brush strokes. The colors are breathtaking. I have seen many copies of this work by RENOIR but none I have run across even slightly compare to this one. It is exquisite to say the least. Little Irene draws you into the depths of enchantment and joy. So relaxing just to stare and stare at it. It is framed in a very heavy wooden & gesso frame - finished in a nice golden patina with dark bronze highlights. It is magnificent. You must see this in person to appreciate the beauty and colors!
Please look at all of the pictures as they form a major portion of the description.
Note: the photos are from the actual print you will receive.
A famous collector once said, "The time to buy art you like is when you see it." It might not be there later.
Would make a fine addition to a home or collection.
