Pierre Auguste Renoir painted Women In A Garden in 1873 and participated in the first Impressionistic exhibition a year later. Until that year, the painter would send artworks to the Paris Salon, with hopes of propelling his career – since he was going through a slump at the time. The Salon had a strict selection and rarely chose works from modern painters, as they followed more classic standards, but eventually, Renoir joined his colleagues in what they called Salon des Refusés.
One of the primary source of inspiration for Renoir, as well as for other Impressionists, was the art and culture from the Orient – mainly the Japanese woodcut prints. These artworks came in subjects of nature and typical scenes of the simple life, an opposition to the modern times that took over Europe at the time. With vibrant colors and unusual compositions, the Japanese art also imposed a strong aesthetic influence.
The oil painting Women In A Garden, Renoir experiments with a daring color palette, changing the tonalities as the sun shines upon the landscape. On the left side of the canvas, a bundle of green bushes with colorful flowers was depicted with spots of paint. Some thin trees emerge from the vegetation and hold dark green leaves. The road is placed slightly to the right, and almost gives a sense of perspective, but still feels two-dimensional. Renoir will accentuate this play on dimensions in his work later in his career. The path was painted in complementary yellow and purple shadows. The overall vegetation varies from light to dark and gets darker as it gets farther from the viewer. The sky is barely visible, as the painter placed dark leaves from the closest tree covering the small areas of blue on the top of the canvas.
Renoir structured the composition in a way that the spectator sees the colorful flowers at first, and carefully leads their eyes to the road and ultimately to the woman standing in the background. She wears a dark blue dress that almost blends in the vegetation, but hold a white parasol that makes her figure pop in the environment. This painting portrays a reoccurring subject for Renoir; lively gardens with strong female figures, like in Summer Landscape aka Woman with a Parasol in a Garden painted two years later.
