About Landscape

The artwork titled “Landscape” is an oil on canvas painting by Pierre-Auguste Renoir created in the year 1881. Measuring 18.25 by 22.75 cm, the piece is attributed to the Impressionism movement and falls under the landscape genre. Currently, it resides within a private collection.

This small-scale landscape by Renoir captures the essence of the Impressionist style, which he championed along with his contemporaries. The palette is soft, with brusque and seemingly spontaneous brushstrokes providing texture and a sense of movement that is characteristic of the movement. The painting’s foreground is dominated by what appears to be a field or open expanse, leading up to a brush of trees or shrubs positioned centrally. Beyond this middle ground, the background fades into soft, indistinct bluish and mauve hues that suggest a distant range or the edge of a sky. The overall atmosphere is one of fleeting natural beauty, captured with the light touch and elusive nature that is typical of Renoir’s landscapes.
