About Glass of Wine

The artwork “Glass of Wine” by Pierre-Auguste Renoir was created in 1908. This oil on canvas is a fine example of the Impressionism movement and falls within the still life genre. It is currently held in a private collection, indicating that it is not on public display but rather under the ownership of an individual or entity who has chosen to keep it in a personal space.

The artwork itself displays a vivid and seemingly spontaneous portrayal of a simple still life scene, depicting a glass of wine alongside what appears to be bread and a sliced fruit, possibly cheese, all resting on a surface that suggests the intimacy of a casual dining experience. Renoir’s masterful use of color and light brings a sense of vibrancy to the composition, encapsulating the fleeting moments of everyday life with his characteristic brushstrokes. The background is rendered in broad, loose strokes of green and yellow, suggesting a nondescript, blurred setting that serves to highlight the central subjects. The interplay of colors and the deft application of paint are emblematic of Renoir’s style and contribute to the artwork’s lively and atmospheric quality.
