Renoir initially preferred to make sketches and pastels as preparatory studies for his paintings. It was only after 1880, when line began to play a greater role in his paintings, that he focussed more on drawing. This is a study for a painting from 1890 with three women taking a walk: the daughter of the writer Paul Alexis and two of Renoir’s neighbours in Montmartre.
I'm french. A friend of mine gave me a reproduction of this study, but the name is not the same; it is called " deux jeunes filles se promenant" ( two Young girls walking" ). I would like to know what is the real title of this drawing. Thank you !

The drawing served as a prepatory study for a painting called ‘Trois jeunes filles en promenade’. As the drawing was not given a title by Renoir, there is no original title of this artwork. The title ‘Two women walking to the right’ was given by a curator of the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.
