Renoir's most famous view of Paris is just such a classic illustration of the latest and the newest part of the 70s of the 19th century. The image of the boulevard is filled with colorful spots and bright colors, which are so typical for Impressionism
. Modern city life is presented with visible brush strokes, allowing the viewer to perceive the world as if he had just passed. This is the proverbial magic Renoirova
Paris. But modern history interwoven with the city seizes, although it is presented very subjectively and zapomocí fleeting impression.

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).
