Sentier dans le Bois by Pierre-Auguste Renoir

Sentier dans le Bois is an exquisite piece by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, painted in Fontainebleau between 1874 and 1877. This oil on canvas, measuring 25 3/4 x 21 1/4 inches, showcases Renoir’s mastery in the Impressionist style, particularly his prowess in capturing the delicate interplay of light within the serene woodland setting​1​.

In October 2018, this masterpiece was gracefully framed by John Davies Framing. The chosen frame, Louis XIV with an off-white canvas slip, complements the artwork’s tranquility. Carved from lime wood on a pine base, it’s gilded with 23.4 carat gold leaf with a 1.5cm slip width and a 13.5cm profile width.
