About the painting
The print of a Renoir’s painting is hanging in children bedroom where Ren MacCormack (Kevin Bacon) is living with his mother and extended family. We can see the print when someone attack the children bedroom window with a brick to scare family at night.
The girl from the portrait Irène was born in 1872 and lived in Paris. Her father, a wealthy Jewish banker named Louis Raphael Cahen d’Anvers commissioned Pierre Auguste Renior for three portraits in 1880; one of each of his daughters. Read more about Irène story on: http://apogent.wordpress.com/ .
