Luncheon of the Boating Party

The "Luncheon of the Boating Party" is an oil on canvas painting by Pierre-Auguste Renoir,

datable to 1880-1882 and kept at the Phillips Collection in Washington.

Original Painting by

Pierre-Auguste Renoir

The painting, combining figures, still-life, and landscape in one work, depicts a group of Renoir's friends relaxing on a balcony at the Maison Fournaise restaurant in France. The painter, Gustave Caillebotte, is seated in the lower right. Renoir's future wife, Aline Charigot, is in the foreground playing with a small dog.

 In this painting Renoir has captured a great deal of light. The main focus of light is coming from the large opening in the balcony, beside the large singleted man in the hat. The singlets of both men in the foreground and the table-cloth all work together to reflect this light and send it through the whole composition.

Mosaic Artwork

The artist's brushstroke, in which colors and shapes stop only at immediate and fleeting impression, are reproduced with an apparently instinctive mosaic. In reality it is fundamental to get in tune with the artist's work, to reproduce with the same intensity the gesture of the artist himself.

Composition:

Venetian enamels and gold leaf mosaic.

 

Dimensions:

186x155 cm.
