Two Young Girls at the Piano1892

Auguste Renoir

In late 1891 or early 1892 Renoir was invited by the French government to execute a painting for a new museum in Paris, the Musée du Luxembourg, which was to be devoted to the work of living artists. He chose as his subject two girls at the piano. Aware of the intense scrutiny to which his submission would be subjected, Renoir lavished extraordinary care on this project, developing and refining the composition in a series of five canvases. The Lehman painting and the nearly identical version formerly in the collection of Renoir's fellow Impressionist Gustave Caillebotte have long been regarded as the most accomplished variants of this intimate and engaging scene of bourgeois domestic life.


Dos jovencitas al piano1892

Pierre-Auguste Renoir


A finales de 1891 o principios de 1892, Renoir fue invitado por el gobierno francés a pintar un cuadro para el nuevo Musée du Luxembourg en París, dedicado a las obras de artistas vivos. Renoir escogió el tema de dos jovencitas tocando el piano y, consciente del intenso escrutinio al que sería sometida su obra, desarrolló y refinó la composición con extraordinario celo en una serie de cinco lienzos.
