This beautiful painting was one of Renoir’s late nudes, and one of very few that feature a nude woman in an interior setting. As the title says, she is a “nude on cushions”, not in nature as most of his many earlier, better known nudes had been. As an aside, lovely Gabrielle was the nanny before she became one of Renoir’s favorite subjects. We’ll just let it be, shall we? Instead, let’s discuss this sumptuous reproduction, this very impressive piece in its own right. It is itself a painting of a sort, presented on board and featuring a glaze and even, underneath, what appear to be layers of paint. We cannot be completely sure of the process, but we can assure you that it is almost as rich and evocative as we imagine the original to be. Part of the magic is that it is also quite old, dating from the early to early-mid-20th century—not long after the original was painted in1906. The classic frame is solid wood and quite substantial. This was art meant to hang in a wealthy home or even a museum. There are two small places of damage worth noting, where some minor loss of the image has occured, but in the overall impact they do not register much. In fact, they only serve to accentuate the fact that this is not a new reproduction, this is truly an antique. We don’t want to make assumptions about your net worth or future prospects, but this is likely the closet you will come to having an actual Renoir on your wall…happily, from an aesthetic point of view, it’s pretty close.
