The oil painting entitled The Garden In The Rue Cortot At Montmartre was concluded in 1874 by Pierre Auguste Renoir. During a brief period, the artist was working in a studio at the Montmartre – an economic and vibrant quarter that was frequented by many artists from Paris. This was the same location that Renoir painted his masterpiece The Ball at the Moulin de la Galette in 1876. The Garden In The Rue Cortot At Montmartre portrays the wild gardens his new studio, filled with blossoming dahlias. Many art historians believe that the two men represented in the background are Renoir’s fellow Impressionist artists, Alfred Sisley and Claude Monet.
One of Renoir’s main sources of inspiration during this time – as well as for the other Impressionists – was the Oriental culture. As modern artists, the Impressionists weren’t up to following the rules of the Classic Academies, which dictated how and what artists should paint, usually ensuing teaching of the Classic Greeks. Because of their lack of interest in biblical stories and mythological subjects, modern painters turned their attention to the Japanese woodcut prints done in a technique called Ukiyo-e. These exotic prints brought themes of exuberant nature side-by-side with humankind in vibrant colors and unusual compositions.
The painting entitled The Garden In The Rue Cortot At Montmartre is a remarkable painting of unique composition and beautiful color palette. Renoir placed a large bush with colorful blossoming flowers in the forefront, which takes up about half of the canvas. As an Impressionist, it is understandable how the artist gives most attention to the bright red, pink, orange, yellow and white flowers, then to the figures in the background. The dark leaves of the vegetation are painted with dark tonalities of blue and green.
The background is less defined, as the painter used blotches of paint to give an idea of the figures and lighting. There are two men on the right corner of the background, looking and talking to each other. They seem to be leaning on a dark wooden fence that gives a sense of perspective to the composition. The earthy tones of the background and the human figures contrast with the vibrant colors of the flowers, creating a harmonious painting.
