About Young Woman

The artwork titled “Young Woman” by Pierre-Auguste Renoir is an oil on canvas sketch and study associated with the Impressionism art movement. The piece measures 24.25 x 16 cm and currently resides within a private collection.

The artwork exhibits the characteristic loose brushwork and light color palette associated with Impressionist works. It portrays a young woman captured in mid-gesture, her posture and the turn of her head suggesting a fleeting, candid moment. The background is rendered with broad, indistinct strokes of green, which serve to frame the subject without overpowering the delicate sketch of the woman. Despite its sketch-like nature, the work conveys an impression of life and movement, encapsulating the essence of the subject with economy and grace. Renoir’s ability to depict the interplay of light and shadow with such brevity is indicative of his mastery in the Impressionist style.
