Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette
Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette, 1876, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, France, 131cmx175cm, Paris Orsay Museum
Impressionism has indoors paintings, and many impressionists believe that the light changes make everything more perishable. But Renoir does not think so. Therefore, in this picture, we can see the light go through between people, bring people happiness, and even amplified people's happiness. In addition to the happy crowd, Renoir also paints some still life, with delicate glowing lamps and glasses on the table that reflect light.
The work portrays a multitude of characters that give a crowded feeling of crowdedness, speckle jumping, crowdedness and a strong impression of joy. The main color of the screen is blue and purple, so that people from near to far distance, resulting in a multi-level sense of rhythm. The painter focused his efforts on depiction of a group of close-up shots, vividly displaying the light-colored effect of the face and the blur caused by light and shadow, and renders the atmosphere of the party. On the whole, he retains the nostalgia of the Impressionist external light and stains, so that the overall tone of the picture, the atmosphere has a trembling, flashing strong effect.
Renoir using a beautiful and natural way, portrays the characters in the various gestures of the painting, arguably a collective portrayal. The characters in the foreground are artists, writers, journalists, models and waitresses, many of whom are Renoir's good friends.
The oil painting was auctioned in 1990 at a price of 78.1 million U.S. dollars.
