If I ever feel that I'm no oil painting, I'm going to look at this and realise that if these girls are, I am too.
RENOIR, Pierre-Auguste Large Bathers (Les Grandes Baigneuses) 1884-87 Oil on canvas, 118 x 171 cm Museum of Art, Philadelphia
The Large Bathers: 1887 by Pierre Auguste Renoir (Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, PA) - Post Impressionism - Prev pinner note: "Renoir worked on this painting for three years before he was satisfied with its composition. Along with at least two full-sized figure drawings of the models, Renoir also created many preliminary drawings for each of the figures before painting them. He was criticized for the painting’s sculptural smoothness and his change in style."
