Catalogue Note

Études, femme au jardin constitutes a series of charming studies of the artist's favorite subjects: women, children, flowers and the bourgeois classes in their leisure pursuits. Focusing in this case on gardening, we see the sheer joy of figures tending to the flowers and plants of their suburban Parisian gardens. A rare and compelling example of Renoir's proficiency and finesse as a draftsman, the present work offers rare insight of the artist's attention to form versus atmosphere with its attention to fine detail.
