Renoir: Garden, 1875

This painting is a delightful example of Renoir's impasto work. It is a paen to the creative force as expressed in nature and features his wife and child at the focal point of his own garden.

About this session

This charming Renoir garden is, unusually, not well documented. We might assume that the woman and child are the same as we see in Renoir: Woman with a Parasol in the Garden, 1875?
