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 setting1.
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.
