Description of the painting by Pierre Auguste Renoir "Dance in Bougival"


Renoir is a French artist, impressionist, the first representative of this direction, who achieved success with society. Like all impressionists, he tried to convey life most accurately and completely - not only life, but also his feelings from it - believing that it consists of moments and the only thing a person can do so that they do not leak through your fingers is to keep them accessible means.

His paintings are usually characterized by lightness and mobility, as if they are ready to move in the next instant, to develop the moment captured by the artist.

Renoir himself is a man devotedly devoted to painting. This is evidenced even by the fact that at the end of his life, paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair, he still continued to write with his practically unbending hand - the nurse inserted a brush between his fingers.

Bougival is the western suburb of Paris, which is called the "cradle of impressionism." There, many masters experienced an upsurge in creative powers and a new beginning.

“Dance in Bougival” - a picture of Renoir, included in the triptych, the first picture of which is “Dance in the city”, and the last - “Dance in the village”. "Dance in Bougival" is the average picture, a dance in the suburbs, and this is evidenced by the whole environment. The tables of the summer cafe, at which are laughing people who came to rest.

Freshly leafy trees, a general feeling of summer and joy. The central couple is also clearly from the vacationers. On the girl's dress with pink trim, a hat with flowers - these are commonly called "pretty." A man leads, he is dressed in dark blue trousers and a shirt, a straw hat hides his face. Only the beard and part of the profile are visible - the girl’s face is in full view. She turns away from her partner, revealing herself to the viewer, but turns away not because he dislikes her - it’s sweet coquetry.

The background behind them is blurry, which gives the dance a sense of movement.
