A Young Girl with Daisies

Auguste Renoir French

Not on view

"I have taken up again, never to abandon it, my old style, soft and light of touch," Renoir announced to his dealer Durand-Ruel in 1888. This picture, made the following year, exemplifies the artist’s predilection for equally gentle and lyrical subjects. Daises and other wildflowers lend a note of rustic charm to the sweet-faced model. Such celebrations of youth and beauty proved to be highly successful with Renoir’s clientele.
