Our Chiffon Renoir scarf features a beautifully detailed print of Renoir's 1875 painting "Summer Landscape" also known as "Woman with Parasol in the Garden". The woman, whose parasol shades her from the sun, stands close to the man as he leans down, perhaps to pick a flower, hinting at an intimate relationship. The landscape is a rich tapestry of colors created with small dabs of paint suggesting flowers, grasses and shrubs. The scene for this lovely painting was the garden of Renoir's newly acquired studio in Montmartre, a district in the northern part of Paris, France.
Our Renoir scarf is made of the finest polyester chiffon which has a light, flowing drape. It is perfect for all season wear and it's rich warm colors will complement many outfits and jacket styles.
Pierre-Auguste Renoir, French Impressionist Painter, 1841-1919
Pierre-Auguste Renoir is a French artist who was a leader in developing the Impressionist style. Born in 1841 to a tailor, his family moved to Paris which allowed Renoir to often visit the Louvre when he was a young man working as an apprentice in a porcelain factory. Later he studied art and joined forces with Monet, Sisley, Pissarro, and several other artists to mount the first Impressionist exhibition in April 1874. Hoping to attract commissions, Renoir began to specialize in portraits and within a few years became recognized as a serious painter. In 1890, he married Aline Victorine Charigot, and they had 3 sons. Renoir developed rheumatoid arthritis in his later years and changed his painting style to accommodate this condition. Prior to his death in 1919, he visited the Louvre to see his works displayed there.
