    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.

More information

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.
