There are a couple of iterations on the exact title of this piece; most common is the title we have listed here, but others sources show it at “Horsewomen riding in the Boise de Boulogne Park”, simply ‘The Ride” or “Morning Ride”. Pierre-Auguste Renoir was born in 1841 in Limoges, France and is historically reported to be one of the leading painters in the Impressionist style. He was particularly adept at feminine sensuality, and often compared to Rubens or Watteau; he died in 1919 at the age of 78. This is an older print of his painting created in 1873 depicting Madame Henriette Dorras and one of her daughters out for a morning ride in the infamous French Park. With subdued color and beautiful expressive horses this image is at once timeless and historical. Triple-matted in black/grey/mauve colors with a large gilded wooden frame, this print is in very good condition with one note: There are some small age spots on and above the child’s face. Framed under glass, c1950s. Picture measures 36 x 41.
