 The hard life "Oilpainting on Linen" by Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919)



The circumstance that has arisen here a portrait of Monet and his wife Camille as a couple is a rarity. Renoir Monet did not paint more often, but with his wife Camille. Renoir was an opportunity here at that time his best friend and fellow painter and his wife, Camille, probably somewhere in Paris to portray on a street.

Claude Monet and Camille poor, with music you want to scrape together some money both for himself and his family could Monet food and other vital buy stuff. In addition, he was in debt to his supplier (art supplies) and had no more material to paint.

It is one of those paintings where Renoir's dictum; Schwarz is the queen of all colors, raised the issue exactly to the point. Chic in a black dress with a white blouse and a slight cut you are, Camille, the wife of Monet while her husband Claude is also dressed up on the white shirt, all in black, and a blanket was lying on the legs, maybe it is even coat of Camille.

Camille's facial features betray nothing about the seriousness of life. If we look, however (to the left) to Monet, looking very depressed, so as man guessed that it hardly is a scene asked.

 The joy Camille played on the guitar can not distract from the grief Claude Monet, which reflects the seriousness of the situation with his sad expression. Renoir did not particularly rare guitar playing women painted, giving a further indication of the design.


Camille Monet geschminckt und mit Blonder Perücke

Photo Camille Monet with a blond wig and makeup

A striking feature of Camille, the dark eyebrows and blonde hair in contrast, the parting color. During my research I discovered the cause of the circumstance of blond hair. I researched about Monet in Wikipedia and found a comment on one of Monet paintings find that his wife Camille in colorful clothes with a Japanese woman shows subjects.The text was to read that Claude Monet painted Camille as a Japanese woman and had worn a wig in the painting.


Painted Claude Monet by Renoir and Camille painted by Monet

In the painting by Claude Monet titled "La Japonaise" the dark eyebrows Camille's are clearly visible. If the geisha's eyes theatrically open the mouth wide open and his mouth slightly, yet the similarity of the two actresses, unlike here, the actor playing the guitar, well understand. That in the theatrical facial expressions Camille (geisha) and take the tear your eyes the eyebrows a different form, as opposed to the relaxed face pose as a guitar player is more than obvious and was only mentioned in passing.




The image with the most respect Japan, that was painted by Monet's "La Japonaise" Camille in Japanese costume. It shows Camille in a Japanese robe, decorated with plastic embroidery. She turns her face to the viewer of the image and looks him in the eyes. She fans herself with a fan air. This will be taken up again in the image background, which shows irregularly arranged on a wall twelve subjects. Although the picture is bright and colorful, but its unity in the former conventions accordingly. The room lacks the typical Monet atmosphere without equipment.

There are also other concessions to the audience with the colors of the tricolor, which was reproduced in compartments in Camille's hand. Also, the blonde wig Camille is a break with the Japanese style.
Info1 and Wikipedia in German Info2 under the headliene; Monet and the Modern



   Camille jeweils mit Blonde Perücke 

Camille, each with a blond wig

Japanese women usually have dark hair so why the blonde wig was also seen as a break with the Japanese style. Wigs are known to be manageable and the hair / wig geisha was in contrast to the more guitar player pulled down in the face. The central peak is in the same location and can be seen from the hair shaft that this is the one and the same wig. Only the color choice is a little different, which might well be that a lighter blond to red kimono was better suited as a light strawberry blonde or Renoir did not reflect the actual color of the wig identical. As a final version still remain the two different colored wigs of the same species were present.

The left photo is a little bit the Negative Photo Ckarakter the paintings section represents and comes from the infrared study. The photo was taken as experimental comparison because the photo Monet's right, here in his former garden also has a kind of negative character. Monet in a white summer suit strongly shows the characteristic traits.

Monet himself admits to be a beggar! Info3 (Find it only in German Language)



An art Posted on harassment, that came from none other than Claude Monet himself, who was tired of always having to beg and harass buyers, I discovered by chance on the internet. The authenticity of the painting by Renoir, Monet painted by a beggar is thus provided. Also take a look on this; Often he ended up begging money from his friends, including Edouard Manet. Info4


Monet und Renoir zeitweise Bettelarm

Monet painted very poor and has no material for paintings. Excerpt about Monet and poverty


The financial situation of artist friends had not improved, for some even deteriorated alarmingly. Some fought just to survive, often did not know how they can pay the daily bread. And it did not look like a bright spot. For Monet, whose wife was expecting another child, it was very serious. In many friends he begged once again to raise money for the most essential things: food and shelter; Manet borrowed in 1000 Francesco then that should repay Monet with images (but that never happened).

Also Dr. Gachet, the times should be treated Vincent van Gogh later and have supported the Impressionists in much of Monet got a letter with the request to support him.

Another time, Claude Monet wrote to his friend and fellow painter Frederick Bazille he is completely at the end.
The end of August Monet has no money to buy paints and Renoir is indebted to its dealers. "For eight days neither bread nor wine, fire for cooking or not, it's terrible," as Monet to Bazille.

The choice of colors for this painting Renoir sizes are very sparse and the colors are not applied particularly pasteus. This may be thus acted to other color because of Renoir - who was in league with Monet at the same time - it means that he also had to struggle with poverty and had little or no money for more material. This painting seems to have been painted straight in the nascent stage, when both Monet and Renoir, just drifted into financial disaster and barely able to survive even more.

An interesting video in English about a better understanding of the Wildenstein Institute

The Wildenstein Institute is also editor of the Monet catalog of works and other 46 artists! This video is to show you that Doc Moses works with full transparency and, in contrast to the Wildenstein Institute prove what is a real Renoir and what is not. The video shows a Monet painting based on how arbitrarily judging the authenticity of going equipped, so the Kryptologic method used by Doc Moses  is so important because in point to Renoir, etc., the authorship can be determined.

                                                         See also under Kryptologic recognized Renoir were examined by me for features.
