Description of the painting by Pierre Auguste Renoir "In the Garden"


“In the Garden” is a painting painted by Renoir in 1885 and is currently in the collection of the State Hermitage in St. Petersburg. Made by oil on canvas of a relatively large size. For a long time, this work was almost unknown to the public and was not exhibited not only in the museums, but did not even appear at exhibitions.

Contrary to impressionist rule, Renoir gives the plot detail, but does not turn the picture into exclusively genre and skillfully avoids sentimentalism and the absence of any taste that the impressionists saw in most genre works.

Renoir was one of the main and significant representatives of the Impressionist movement in France. Master portrait, images of secular scenes and light, airy landscapes.

A favorite of the public, Renoir captivates the audience with the charm of its heroes and eye-catching coloring. Although at first he was an ardent supporter of the Impressionists and an “admirer of impression”, by the end of the 19th century he returned to the classics and abandoned his successful early works.

Renoir's paintings often depict sentimental heroes. Couples of lovers, dancing people - the artist loves feeling and movement, lightness and bright emotions. "In the Garden" is just such a work.

The couple depicted on the canvas are not random heroes. A young man, dressed in a light suit, holds the girl by the hand and his eyes are questioningly directed at her beautiful face, and the second hand takes up the waist.

The lady, in turn, looks at the viewer. Her summer dress, a lying bouquet of flowers, surrounding greens and colors - all give a charming and romantic mood.

The young man makes an offer, and the girl thinks over the decision that she wants to make right about. It is known that for a young man Renoir posed for his friend, and the girl was also well acquainted with the artist.
