Roses dans un vase

Roses in a Vase is an oil painting on canvas by Renoir (1841-1919) composed around 1890. It is part of the Musée d'Orsay collection (inventory no. MNR 580) and has been on loan to the Musée de l'Évêché de Limoges since 1986. This small canvas measures 29.5 cm high by 33 cm wide. After his Impressionist phase, during which he turned more to portraiture or themes linked to modernity, Renoir resumed his attempt at the still life, of which Roses in a Vase is a strong example. The large bouquet, which expands in all directions, is characterised by roses with large corollas and fleshy petals that fill the entire painted surface. They are arranged in a white porcelain vase with floral decoration. The painter always made the connection between flowers and feminine beauty. He admitted that he often painted still lifes of this kind as preparatory sketches for his female nudes. Indeed, Renoir was always struck by the chromatic relevance between the epidermis of the women he painted and the fragrant petals of flowers, and even went so far as to model his models' complexions on roses. The painting was part of Ambroise Vollard's collection before 1922. Seized by the Germans from an unknown owner during the Occupation, it was found in 1949 in a private home in Bavaria, along with other paintings of the same provenance, and was registered on 4 May 1949 at the Munich Central Collecting Point. It was taken to France on 3 June 1949 and attributed to the Musée du Louvre by the Office des biens [...]
