Still Life with Peaches

Auguste Renoir French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 824

Reviewers of the 1882 Impressionist exhibition were dazzled by this "very appealing" still life of "a certain fruit bowl of 'Peaches,' whose velvety execution verges on a trompe l'oeil." Painted the previous summer at the country house of Renoir’s patron Paul Berard, it is one of two still lifes that feature the same faïence jardinière; the other version also belongs to the Metropolitan Museum (56.218).
