Pierre Auguste Renoir painted the still-life entitled Rainbow Trout. Although the date of this work is unknown, the painter’s Impressionistic style can be seen by his expressive brush strokes. Renoir was a boating enthusiast, having this subject appear in many of his works. Like many other Impressionists, he would often depict the Seine River. The Seine river was a subject portrayed by many modern artists, such as Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Paul Signac, Vincent Van Gogh, among others. So, it comes naturally to an artist like Renoir to paint a still-life like Rainbow Trout.
The artists of the Impressionist movement were very influenced by the art coming from Japan. They mastered a technique called Ukiyo-e, which is similar to a woodcut print but achieved nuances in color tonalities by using watercolor. These artworks mainly portrayed beautiful landscapes of the artist's surroundings, as did the Impressionist when they painted en plein air, meaning they worked outdoors. The prints that arrived in Europe also brought subjects of the everyday life, which was considered a very modern theme to portray - popular amongst the Impressionists as well.
The artwork Rainbow Trout was done on a horizontal canvas and depicts two trouts centered on the composition. This painting represents a detail of what can be thought of a bigger picture, leading the spectator to try and understand the story behind. The fish seem to have just been caught, as they lay on the ground with their mouth open. Renoir loosely painted green and yellow vegetation under the trouts. The land on the forefront is mainly white with some areas of blue or red pigment, while the background is dark red-brown.
Renoir beautifully captured the glimmering effect of light on the wet, scaly fish. The color palette chosen for this still-life created a beautiful unity between figure and background, as the colors repeat. The fish were painted in a stunning blend of ochre, green, pearly white, brown and hints of bright orange. This choice of subject was considered very modern for the time, as this kind of still-life was not seen as a worthy subject for art in the eyes of the Classic Academies. Like many other Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, Renoir went against the norms imposed on European art and searched to portray ordinary subjects of the everyday life.
