Le Déjeuner des Canotiers

* Artist: Pierre-Auguste Renoir
* Medium: oil on canvas
* Year: 1881
 
 

The Luncheon of the Boating Party is unmistakably one of Renoir’s greatest masterpieces. The level of detail evident in, for example the still life, the characters’ faces and poses, and the moored boats, signifies a break in Renoir’s previous abstractions and a move towards a new post-impressionist style.

Road with Cypress and Star

* Medium: oil on canvas
* Year: 1890
 
 

I viewed this stunning work at the Rijksmuseum Kroller-Muller, The Netherlands, March 2007. The texture and depth of the paint layers isn’t quite captured by this photograph.

Self-Portrait in Blue Jacket

A portrait of an artist as a middle-aged man: evidently deep, pensive and chain smoking. This piece also has a captivating palette and interesting contrasts.
