This time RIOLIS’ designers suggest their interpretation of one of the most famous portraits from French painter Pierre-August Renoir presented in original cross stitch kit.


Renoir is well-known for his portraits of women. “I could not walk yet, but I already loved painting women”, - master has confessed. The series of portraits of actress from Comedie Francaise theatre is one of the most famous.  All the audience (and even professionals – art historians) choice awards goes to this picture of secular beauty, executed in 1877 (paintings with this main heroine are often distinguished by the year of their creation).


According to some researchers, this Renoir’s portrait is one of the most impressionistic – both in spirit and technique of execution. He had his own view of art and special manner of painting, somewhat different from style classics. Cross stitched picture conveys bold texturally laid brushstrokes.
