Auguste Renoir: Les deux soeurs - The Two Sisters

Postcards never do justice to original works of art because the real thing has a totally different impact that a reproduction never approaches.  Renoir's works in particular have a special quality that nothing else seems to capture.  Nevertheless postcards and posters do serve as a lovely reminder of something special.

This picture of two sisters is part of the Niarchos collection in London.  It was the first major purchase that Stavros Niarchos made, in 1952.

Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
