“Children by the Seashore” by Renoir, Guernsey Museum, 2000.

← Back to the Portfolio

In 1888, Renoir visited Guernsey and painted several versions of my favourite childhood bay; Moulin Huet. In a letter to Watteau, Renoir describes Guernsey as a ” Kind of Paradise”. This was re-created over a period of 9 days with 165 locals and tourists.

Oil on canvas, 150cm x 100cm. Sponsored by the States of Guernsey.
