Pierre-Auguste Renoir's Rose Garden at Wargemont painted in 1879, is a studied game of depth and form imparting a sense of movement and energy. The artist explores the natural idiosyncrasies of plant growth and boils them down to a series of experiential dabs of color. Paintings such as this reproduction of a landscape are deeply imbibed with the exciting ideals of its day, in which broadly visible brushstrokes, a confident and natural use of an ample palette as well as a more experiential depiction of light gave rise to a revolution in art history – that of Impressionism. The movement was a vehicle for innovation in painting movement and light. While the artists associated with the style were seen as radical harbingers of a new style, they were also dependent on the classical forms and techniques of composition of the traditional schools of French painting.
Rose Garden at Wargemont is a perfect example of the radical yet paradoxically traditional style for which Pierre-Auguste Renoir would become famous. The canvas is remarkable for its deep saturation of color and dancing shades of light, ensuring that the painting is no simple reproduction from life. The Impressionists enjoyed focusing on experiential encounters with nature, so the natural world felt almost close enough to touch, and enjoyed emphasizing humorous candor in their depictions.
Greatly influenced by Realists Gustave Courbet and Édouard Manet in their rejection of the exotic subject matters of the Romanticists, Renoir's subjects were humble and of the everyday life, imbued with the vibrancy of lived experience. While remaining a traditional painter and comfortably existing in the canon of the great masters of form and style, Renoir also demonstrated within Rose Garden at Wargemont the degree to which he could incorporate the traditional with the radical.
In this particular painting, Renoir created an inviting ambiance or beautiful natural colors. In the forefront, the painter positioned a series of blossoming bushes and small trees, with white and red flowers. He also used more light and dark contrast in this central figure than in the rest of the canvas. On the left side of the background, the Impressionist portrays large green trees, soaked in sunlight and reaching the top edge of the painting. On the right, a large house is depicted with many windows, a purple rooftop, and two red brick chimeneas.
