About the Artwork

It is difficult to tell whether the scene takes place in a private Parisian garden or whether the women are in the countryside. What is clear is that Renoir here was painting en plein air, bringing his canvas outdoors to work directly before his subject. He is especially attentive to the shifting conditions of the natural world: the dress of the foreground figure is a swirl of colors, with brushstrokes indicating shadows from perhaps a tree or a cloud passing overhead.
