Pierre-Auguste Renoir: Road at Wargemont

Road at Wargemont: Pierre-Auguste Renoir

The road at Wargemont, painted by French artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir in 1879 keeps with the Impressionist ethic of the division of light into separate and sometimes contrasting effects.

Renoir (1841-1919) painted a number of works at Wargemont on the French Normandy coast, bringing a painterly style of expressiveness to this scene which also is faithfully represented. A fine balance is struck between the reporting of the scene’s changing light and the artist’s own perception of it.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s Road at Wargemont is in the Toledo Museum of Art in Ohio, United States of America.
