Renoir by Vierling

Renoir Family Portrait.

Was a privilege and an honor to be commissioned to paint a portrait of Jhon Renoir and his two children, Renee and Alex. They are the direct descendants of the french impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and the filmmaker, Jean Renoir.

The portrait features the three living Renoirs under the benevolent visage of their illustrious ancestor's autoportrait. The setting is the interior of the Hiroshi House Recording Studios in Grass Valley, California, where Jhon and Alex produce exclusively analog albums for an international roster of music acts.

The painting was executed in egg tempera and oil paint on panel, and measures 32" x 42" (81 cm x 106 cm). It resides in the Renoir collection.
