This appears to be a hand painted copy of a Renoir original. There are no listings for Renoir still-lifes that approach the size of this canvas (35"x30").

(Renoir passed just over 100 years ago). **This appraiser's references show listings for Renoir's original still life paintings that sold at auction as well as the Renoir copies that can be purchased for a tiny fraction of the originals.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir was born 1841 in Limoges and brought up in Paris, From the age of thirteen he worked as an apprentice painter, painting flowers on porcelain plates.In 1862 Renoir entered the Atelier Gleyre and there made friends with Monet, Sisley and Bazille; some time later he met Pissarro and Cézanne. In 1886, the art dealer Durand-Ruel exhibited 32 of Renoir's paintings in New York, thus opening the American market for Impressionism. In December 1888, Renoir suffered the first attacks of arthritis, which would cripple his hands; in 1898 after a serious attack of the disease his right arm was paralyzed. From now on he painted, overcoming strong pains, strapping a brush to his wrist. Renoir died in Cagnes, France on December 3, 1919.

The presented object appears to be a painting made in oil or acrylic paint on canvas with the measurements of 35" x 30". This painting depicts a still life with anemones in a jug or vase. In the lower right corner, we see the signature of the famous artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919). This motif in this painting is a known artwork by Renoir which was sold at Christie´s in New York 1992 with the size of 41 x 33 cm. This is a handpainted copy after the original painting by Rodin which was sold in 1992 and differs in the size. The depiction and the brush strokes are partly flat which is typical for a copy. Additionally, the machine woven canvas, the stretcher, and the staples are a hint for a modern canvas of the second half of the 20th century.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
