Historical Context:
Le Panier de Fraises presents a summertime still life. Full of saturated colors, it includes a blue jug that holds small white flowers and woven basket overflowing with ripe red strawberries and leaves. This painting was possibly shown in New York at the Hammer Galleries’ Fernand Renard exhibition in 1971; Stuart and Barbara Padnos purchased it from the gallery at that time. While Renard’s life is not well documented, we do know that he produced work for other American collectors.
