Auguste Renoir – Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette – 1876

Giclée print of Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s masterpiece “Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette – 1876” is available on acid free 100% cotton papers or canvas using archival ink, also available frame. This listed artwork is professionally scanned by museum.



This painting is doubtless Renoir’s most important work of the mid 1870’s and was shown at the Impressionist exhibition in 1877. Though some of his friends appear in the picture, Renoir’s main aim was to convey the vivacious and joyful atmosphere of this popular dance garden on the Butte Montmartre. The study of the moving crowd, bathed in natural and artificial light, is handled using vibrant, brightly coloured brushstrokes. The somewhat blurred impression of the scene prompted negative reactions from contemporary critics.

This portrayal of popular Parisian life, with its innovative style and imposing format, a sign of Renoir’s artistic ambition, is one of the masterpieces of early Impressionism.
