Pierre-Auguste Renoir at the Clark Art Institute

Pierre-Auguste Renoir | Bouquet of Roses, 1879

In the summer of 1879, the banker and diplomat Paul Berard invited Pierre-Auguste Renoir to his country house in Normandy.
During his visit, the artist painted portraits of Berard’s children and made several panel decorations, this one for a door in the library.

Nell'estate del 1879, il banchiere e diplomatico Paul Berard invitò Renoir nella sua casa di campagna in Normandia.
Durante la sua visita, l'artista dipinse ritratti dei figli di Berard e realizzò diverse decorazioni su tavola, questa per una porta della biblioteca.

Jean Béraud | Windy day on the Concorde, 1890

A fashionably dressed woman carries a purple hatbox across a Paris square, the pavement wet with rain.
She clutches her hat to avoid the fate of the man behind her, whose hat has been blown from his head by a gust of wind.
Béraud designed a horse-drawn studio to shield him from the elements so he could capture such detailed, playful scenes of contemporary Parisian life. | The Clark Art Institute
