Antique Renoir Etching, Le Chapeau Epingle (La Fille de Berthe Morisot et sa Cousine) circa 1894


Pierre Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) etching on cream paper, signed on plate, circa 1894 in a stunning antique frame. This etching is titled Le Chapeau Epingle (‘The Pinned Hat’).

Note: The subject of Le Chapeau Epingle (‘The Pinned Hat’) was depicted by Renoir in six different prints, three etchings and three lithographs. Renoir treated this scene of two young girls side by side, with one of them pinning on the other’s hat, in a series of variations at this time. His models are known to have been Julie Manet, the daughter of Berthe Morisot and niece of Eduard Manet, and her cousin, Paulette Gobillard. The scene originated from a study Pierre Renoir made while on holiday on the coast of Northern France with Berthe Morisot and her family. Julie Manet was a favourite model for Renoir and on this occasion he drew her on the beach with her cousin who was adjusting the pin on her large sun hat.
