Pierre-Auguste Renoir: Children's Afternoon at Wargemont

Children’s Afternoon at Wargemont: Pierre-Auguste Renoir

Children’s Afternoon at Wargemont is a distinctly ‘unImpressionist’ work by the so-called Impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir which he completed at the height of the Impressionist movement in 1884.

All details are painted with precision and the play of the effects of light are minimal. The two girls on either side of the canvas are absorbed in their reading and knitting while the central girl pauses to look out at the viewer.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s Children’s Afternoon at Wargemont is in the National Gallery in Berlin, Germany.
