Renoir painted this casual arrangement of onions and garlic piled on crumpled cloth during a visit to Naples in 1881. Clear light and fluid brushstrokes define the onions’ round, solid forms and capture the shiny, papery quality of their skins. Sterling Clark often stated that this was his favorite of the many paintings by Renoir in his collection. | © The Clark Art Institute


Renoir dipinse questo arrangiamento casuale di cipolle e aglio ammucchiati su un panno accartocciato durante una visita a Napoli nel 1881. Una luce chiara ed una pennellata fluida definiscono le forme rotonde, solide delle cipolle e catturano la qualità lucida e cartacea della loro pelle.
Sterling Clark affermava spesso che questo era il suo preferito tra i numerosi dipinti di Renoir nella sua collezione. | © The Clark Art Institute
