Arts Everyday Living: Through the Eyes of Renoir–Rivals in Beauty, A Woman, A Vase of Flowers

Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Blond Girl with a Rose, c. 1915-1917, oil on canvas, Musee de L’Orangerie, Paris, France

Blond Girl with a Rose was done almost 40 years after Reflection featured in today’s other blog. We do know the identity of this sitter.  She was teenager Catherine Hessling, who would someday marry Renoir’s second son Jean (1894-1979),  an award winning film director.
