VINTAGE RED #HAIRINSPO ❤️❤️❤️ We spent our morning in Chicago at the world famous @artinstitutechi and found this awe-inspiring portrait by Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1899/1900). The sitter in this painting is Renoir’s five-year-old son, Jean, who was to become famous in his own right as a film director. Long tresses were in fashion for little boys, and Renoir so love the “silken gold” of Jean’s hair that he insisted it remain long... ahh, the power of HAIR ❤️❤️❤️ For more awesome #hairinspo from @artinstitutechi check our InstaStories!!! ⬆️⬆️⬆️ #esteticalikes#renoir#redhair#hairart
Portrait de Clémentine #Stora, femme d'un antiquaire #parisien au XIXe siècle. Peint par #Renoir, le #tableau la représente en habit d'Algérienne qui a un côté très exotique à cette époque et peu commun en terme de #reconstitution#artistique. Ce tableau est réalisé en #1870 à la fin de la période dite de " #pacification" en #Algérie et juste avant la guerre désastreuse de la #France avec l' #Allemagne. Ce tableau de #Renoir est un hommage à #Delacroix dont Renoir adorait le #style. Ce portrait est médiatisé par Monet qui en fit l'acquisition et accepta de le prêter pour une exposition coloniale. Le tableau fut reproduit à de nombreuses reprises, ce qui acheva de le #médiatiser à cette époque. Claude #Monet adorait ce tableau. Ce tableau était intégré à l'exposition "Monet #Collectionneur" au musée #Marmottan qui est maintenant terminée et de façon récurrente à #SanFrancisco.
Yo tengo una historia escrita dentro de mis ojos, mi pupila narra las variaciones implacables.
Ahí iba ella acariciando las nubes y ahí estaba él fuera del cuadro, contemplado su belleza.
Sabía que llegaría el día que tendría que ser feliz con la felicidad de otros mientras tanto, el cosmos espera a que se de una oportunidad.
Que decir que no haya dicho ayer, todo era cierto acerca de las flores, mueren cuando les arraquen en su florecer.
Sin embargo me enseñaste a que todo lo puedo lograr, y si de aprender se trata nos enseñamos siempre a volver a comenzar. #renoir#impresionismo#poiema
Out exploring art at the #nationalartgallery today. Found my all time favorite painting - Girl with a Watering Can by A. Renoir. It was sheer delight to share my love of art with my son today. This was a first for us in a museum, a place of fond memories for me as a young adult on my own.
Call me Mr. Choquet !!
Thanks to @mayaroseworld 😁
Chocquet, Victor (1821-91) An official in the Customs Service who had private means, Chocquet was a born collector. He started off by accumulating bric-à-brac, and then moved on to paintings and drawings, showing an early interest in the works of Delacroix. In 1875 he attended the Impressionist sale at the Hôtel Drouot and, though he did not buy anything, he was deeply impressed by the works of Renoir, seeing an affinity between his style and that of Delacroix; he immediately commissioned him to paint portraits of himself and his wife (Victor Chocquet, Fogg Art Museum, Cambridge, and Madame Chocquet, Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart). They got on famously together, and Renoir gradually introduced him to the work of his friends, taking him first to the shop of Père Tanguy to show him the works of Cézanne. Chocquet commissioned a portrait from him, and Cézanne actually produced two, one analogous to that of Renoir (1876-77; Collection of Lord Rothschild, London), the other showing him in slippered ease, seated in an armchair (c. 1877, Columbus Gallery of Fine Arts, Ohio). Henceforth, Chocquet became an Impressionist addict, intent on proselytizing as well as buying. When he attended their exhibitions, Duret recounted, `People amused themselves by teasing him on his favorite subject. He was always ready for them, invariably finding the right words as far as his friends were concerned. He was above all else indefatigable on the subject of Cézanne, whom he counted as one of the greatest of painters. Many visitors were amused by this zeal, which they saw as a mild form of insanity.' Chocquet's already large collection was further increased as he became richer and installed himself in a large house in the rue Monsigny. After his death, his collection was sold at the Hôtel Drouot, and included 32 works by Cézanne, 11 by Renoir, 11 by Monet and one each by Pissarro a Sisley
