Luncheon of the Boating Party, Renoir - Artist Series
|Article number:||Made in Vietnam|
The Luncheon of the Boating Party, an oil on canvas by Pierre-Auguste Renoir was created in 1881 and embodies the characteristics associated with impressionist paintings. The work depicts a floating restaurant along the Seine waterway in France with many of Renoir’s friends and loved ones present. His future wife at the time is seen in the foreground playing with a puppy.
The Artist Series artfully transforms paint strokes into paper strips using the ancient art of quilling. Each card takes several hours to make and reimagines a famous work of art into a magnificent greeting card that can either be sent and shared with loved ones or kept and framed as the work of art it is.
Who Made It: Every quilled card is beautifully handmade by a highly skilled artisan and takes one hour to create. Quilling Card, rooted in Vietnam, has a team of women who have become passionate about the art of quilling. Quilling Card provides a stable, safe work environment with healthcare and food benefits to all the artisans. In 2014, they opened their doors and were able to employ over 100 quillers.
