This Boaters tapestry is based on Renoir’s "Luncheon of the Boating Party", a French social scene. Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841–1919), impressionistic painter from Limoges, produced works showing the beauty of women, life in France's social circles, and scenes of countryside scenes. Here we see a lively social scene of Renoir's friends going for lunch along the river Seine, with painter Caillebotte at the lower right, and the lady who would be Renoir's wife, Aline Charigot playing with her dog, as well as other friends of Renoir, from the year 1881. This scene is full of the energy and joy of this occasion, which is accompanied by the abundant sunshine. This French impressionist tapestry "Boaters" is backed with a lining and has a tunnel for easy hanging.
