Pretty Flowers

Two Sisters (On the Terrace), 1881 by Pierre Auguste Renoir, The Art Institute of Chicago.

Renoir began his career painting on porcelain and the pretty subjects he chose lend themselves well to that type of work. This painting is of the young woman who would become Mme. Renoir and her younger sister. She was a frequent model of his.
