Multicolored Chrysanthemums comes from the same period as the famous Dance in Bougival
, belonging to a whole series of three paintings dedicated to dance ( Dancing in the country
, Dance in Bougival
, Dance in city
). Chrysanthemums differs from Renoir's other flower paintings in its simplicity. The painter captures a plain, plain vase filled with only one type of flower, which stands out against a bland background. Pierre Renoir
allows the flowers themselves to guide his brushstrokes, making the painting look unified and very interesting.

One of the greatest French Impressionists
. He painted modestly, humbly studying the works of other painters. His paintings are spontaneous and full of loose, fine brush strokes. Courbet inspired him to depict everyday scenes of ordinary people and Corot influenced Renoir by his love of nature and the use of subtle tones. However, Renoir was most influenced by Manet
, who is known for his colourfulness, small spatial depth and broad brushstrokes. Renoir’s images are direct, capturing the optimistic atmosphere
of Parisian streets and cafes. His nudes are known for their purity, fineness, and the play of light on the human body. Among his best-known works are The Swing
(capturing a beloved courting scene, a festive moment, full of colour and light), Moulin de la Galette
(a symbol of Impressionism showing an open-air summer dance festival), Luncheon of the Boating Party
(an idealized portrait of Renoir’s friends, including his future wife). The image shows the abandon of the upper classes and their leisure time. Among his prized paintings is a series of three paintings Dance in the Country, Dance in Bougival
and Dance in the City
(in which he masterfully painted movement and the atmosphere of dance).
