Ball at the Moulin de la Galette

File:Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Le Moulin de la Galette.jpg

 

Men in top hats and boaters and women in pretty dresses chatter, drink and dance under the glowing lights of this famous Parisian dance hall. Renoir loved this  subject and painted it a number of times, reproducing, the patterns made by the light as it catches the figures moving around the floor. Many of Renoir’s friends acted as models for the dancers. The couple in the middle distance are his favorite model Marguerite Legrand and the  Spanish painter Don Pedro de Solares y Cardenas. Like all Impressionists, Renoir painted from life as he sat in the dance hall; his friends assisted him each day in moving his canvases back and forth to his studio.
