Patrick Pierson's Dance at Bougival

Description


(Title from the oil on canvas by Auguste Renoir) In 1913, Octave Mirbeau stated that Renoir never painted an unhappy painting: “His whole life and his work are a lesson in happiness…Perhaps Renoir is the only great painter who has never painted a sad picture," Renoir’s dancing couples seem to be exceptions - unhappy canvases. The frowning mouths of the women in Renoir’s dancing couples imply that Renoir was uncomfortable with the women who were dancing and in painting them, would not allow them to have fun during the activity.
