Still Life with Peaches and Grapes

Auguste Renoir French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 824

Renoir spent part of the summer of 1881 at the country home of his patron Paul Berard in the small Normandy village of Wargemont. During his stay, Renoir painted two similar still lifes in contrasting color harmonies, showing the family’s faïence jardinière piled high with peaches. Berard purchased the present work for himself; the other version (61.101.12) was featured in the seventh Impressionist exhibition the following year.
