Luncheon of the boating party by Renoir
Oil reproduction on canvas of “Luncheon of the boating party”, a work that the impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir painted between 1880 and 1881. The work depicts Renoir’s friends as Gustave Caillebotte placed in the composition in the foreground on the right, and in front of him, Renoir’s favorite model and future wife Aline Charigot, stroking a dog.
They all enjoyed that moment on a terrace at the Maison Fournaise restaurant on the banks of the Seine in Chatou, France. It was a place where boats were rented for walks on the river, where dances were organized that lasted until dawn, and where Renoir spent long periods of time creating his works.
The composition is reminiscent of another work by Renoir although it lacks the fantastic still life of the lunch, it is “Dance at the Moulin de la Galette”, from 1876.
The original is in the “Phillips Collection”, Washington D.C., United States.
It measures 130.2 x 175.6 cm.
