Children at the Beach at Guernsey: Pierre-Auguste Renoir

Pierre-Auguste Renoir: Children at the Beach at Guernsey

In contrast to Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s portraits, precision is cast to the wind in Children at the Beach at Guernsey from 1883.

Titled ‘Enfants au bord de la mer à Guernesey’ in French, Renoir’s concern here is to evoke a windswept and sunny day, and the very wind seems to conspire with the painter to bleed bright colors into each other. The entire picture seems to have the character of vague nostalgia.
