About Maison de la Poste

“Maison de la Poste” is a cityscape artwork by the renowned Impressionist artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir, completed in 1907. The medium utilized for this piece is oil on canvas. As a classic example of Impressionism, the artwork captures a lively and atmospheric scene with a loose brushwork that conveys the effects of light and color. Initially part of a private collection, the artwork is not on public display.

The artwork provides a glimpse into a quaint urban setting, rich with the warmth of natural light. It portrays a series of houses possibly set in a rural town, infused with verdant greenery and hints of civilisation in the distance. The use of vibrant, yet soft palette brings to life the lush foliage and rustic buildings, inviting the viewer to experience the serenity and charm of the scene. The soft edges and blended colors are indicative of Renoir’s signature style, capturing the moment’s fleeting qualities with a sense of immediacy and intimacy that is quintessential to Impressionist work.
