An 1889 oil on canvas, Young Girls Reading (aka The Two Sisters), by Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) the French impressionist painter. The two girls are Yvonne and Christine, daughters of the painter and collector Henry Lerolle. The brushstrokes have been made with deliberate care in this painting to become a part of the overall decorative effect. This was a success and sold to an American collector for 2,100 francs in 1890.
