Woman with a Parasol in a Garden [Femme avec parasol dans un jardin]
Oil on canvas • Impressionism • 54,5 x 65 cm • 1875 • Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid
A springtime landscape with flowers and shrubs created with tiny dabs of colour, providing a constant interweaving of textures around the two small figures. This canvas was painted in the garden of Renoir’s new studio in Montmartre. His friend George Rivière recalled: “As soon as Renoir entered the house, he was charmed by the view of this garden, which looked like a beautiful abandoned park.”.
The woman’s parasol seems like a halo around her head.
Brilliantly observed! 😉
Heading over to check it out again. He is a fave of mine!
I remember!!!! Mouah!!!!!
happy weekend 💎🐓✨
A happy weekend to you too my dear 🐉 friend. 🙏🌟🐉🌟🙏🕊🌿
Happy birthday, Pierre-Augusto Renoir!! Marina – your tribute to this amazing artist has added colour and brilliant to my day. I was reading this morning that Renoir accepted the instruction from his Neoclassical mentor: Jean-Auguste-Dominque Ingres, even though the academic style didn’t suit him. Renoir, with the help of Ingres, acquired the elementary skills needed to become a painter. This was my reminder that discipline is essential in everything we do. We learn from everything we do as well as from those who take time to help us.
Oh, how right you are and what a mentor too!
So happy to hear this brightened your day [and we sure need it!]
Many hugs your way.
One of my all-time favs. Renoir.
Rightfully so! 😉
Renoir, Monet… delightful, both!
I couldn’t agree more! 😘😘😘😘😘😘
