Lot Essay

A photo-certificate from Michel Guino, dated Paris, 29 September 1999, accompanies this work.

This sculpture depicts Madame Renoir seated and nursing her first child, Pierre. Executed by Richard Guino under the direction of Renoir, Materniti was intended as a study for a large statue which was to be placed on Mme. Renoir's tomb at Essoyes. The larger version never was executed.
