• Elegant Parisian park scene - emblematic of Impressionism.
• One of the Renoir's preferred motifs: created in the garden of Château Brouillard in Montmartre, Paris, next to which Renoir lived at the time.
• Reminiscent of the elegance of the Rococo and characterized by French lightness of the famous "fêtes galantes" of Watteau or Fragonard.
• Created in the happy, family days following the marriage to his model Aline and the birth of their son Jean.
• After he had overcome a crisis in the mid 1890s, Renoir reinvented himself in pastel, bright colors and pure painting
