Boaters who lunch
Luncheon of the Boating Party by Pierre-Auguste Renoir captures an idyllic atmosphere as Renoir’s friends share food, wine, and conversation on a balcony overlooking the Seine at the Maison Fournaise restaurant in Chatou. The painting also reflects the changing character of French society in the mid- to late 19th century. The restaurant welcomed customers of many classes, including businessmen, society women, artists, actresses, writers, critics, seamstresses, and shop girls.
This diverse group embodied a new, modern Parisian society. This reproduction is created one brush stroke at a time, by classically trained artists, using the same “impasto” technique of the original masters. There’s no computer manipulation and no assembly line. In fact, it takes at least 10 days before the paintings are even dry enough to handle. Turn the room where you gather, and celebrate with your own groups of friends, into a museum with this masterpiece reproduction. So impeccably done, Renoir himself would be hard pressed to see any differences from his original. Genuine, hand-painted oil on canvas, set into a 23" x 18" antique-gilded frame.
