by Pierre Auguste Renoir

P.O.A.

DIMENSIONS: (unframed) 5.75  x 10.25 inches / 14.61 x 26.04 cm
SIGNATURE: Stamp of the signature lower left
MEDIUM: Oil on canvas

A leading painter in the Impressionist style, Pierre-Auguste Renoir was a prolific French artist. Esquisse de paysage reveals Renoir’s creative process, showing how he layered paint and colours to produce his acclaimed body of work.

This spontaneous sketch depicts a town landscape. Though unfinished, it reveals how Renoir layered light tones over dark tones. For example, the front wall of the house on the left shows how white has been layered over an ochre base. This technique is also visible in the surrounding foliage, and lends the composition warmth. The haziness with which the scene has been depicted not only indicates the spontaneity of this sketch, but also shows how Renoir carefully considered the mixing of colours.
