The Boat is an 1878 painting in the Impressionist style by the leading French artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir. This work is located in the Museum Langmatt Sidney and Jenny Brown Foundation in Baden, Switzerland.
This painting depicts a stunning French landscape. Thick grass, numerous branches of trees, and the blue expanse of the lake make the viewer distract from the crazy rhythm of modern life and plunge into a state of complete peace. Trees and shrubs, like broad-shouldered guards, shield the lake from the hostile world.
