Pierre Auguste Renoir (1841-1919)

This painting is one of the first examples of the concept of 'Impressionism', the first exhibition being only the year before, in 1874. Renoir was working with brand new ideas on a brand new street, a street that had just been rebuilt from an òlder`Paris street.

This was a street scene before street scenes were fashionable. Most of the Parisian streets since Antoine Blanchard are almost geometric. The streets are long, the shops follow towards the horizon, the people are scattered across a panoramic range across the painting and the sky is usually another theme or there's some landmark found in the distance.

Not so here.

The sky is at a minimum, in fact the trees (unspecified trees) turning color are the dominant view, then the people and then the street. It's a capture of a specific neighborhood, a brand new boulevard in Paris, captured with colors. And of course, everyone here is really well dressed, as in all impressionist paintings.
This is what quaint old Paris looked like on an evening if you had a little money to spend more than a hundred years ago.
