This piece is executed in the medium of oil on canvas, exemplifying the Impressionist movement’s characteristic style. The dimensions of the artwork are 82 by 62.6 centimeters.

The artwork presents a vivid and intimate portrayal of the children of Paul Berard, captured with the softness and spontaneity that is reflective of Renoir’s impressionistic technique. Various expressions and stances are depicted among the children, suggesting both the playfulness and the quiet moments of childhood. The brushwork is loose and dappled with light, giving life to their forms and capturing the innocence and individuality of each subject. Renoir’s use of color and his ability to convey the children’s characters are eminent, as he translates the tender and fleeting nature of youth onto the canvas. Each child, displayed with varying degrees of attention and detail, seems to be caught in a natural and unguarded moment, embodying the Impressionist movement’s fascination with everyday life and capturing the ephemeral quality of the moment.
