Pierre Auguste Renoir painted Young Girls On The Beach during the later years of his career, in 1898. The artist suffered from his health during this time, making it challenging to keep working. Around 1894, the painter was diagnosed with rheumatism – a disease that disfigured his fingers, making painting and every-day tasks challenging to accomplish. On top of this chronic and painful limitation, Renoir suffered a stroke, which left him bound to a wheel-chair. Despite the enormous amount of difficulty – at times he would tie a brush to his fingers – the Impressionist painted until his death in 1919.
The art dealer Ambroise Vollard was Renoir’s long-time friend and suggested he tried working with sculpture in clay, after seeing his growing frustration with his new limitations in painting. Renoir considered this idea and began a partnership with Richar Guino, who was able to capture the essence in Renoir’s art in his sculptures. Even though Renoir had physical difficulties, he was able to create the intimate oil painting, Young Girls On The Beach. During this period, the artist’s work became more intimate, as he painted the scenes surrounding him and the people closest to him.
Although in the 1880s Renoir decided to let aside the Impressionist movement – which he was one of the main founders – to study the classic styles and techniques of the past masters, by the 1990s he returned to his modern way of painting. His comeback to Impressionism came even stronger, as he joined this with the artistic knowledge he had acquired. In Young Girls On The Beach, Renoir portrays two girls sitting with their back to the viewer, looking out to the ocean.
Both girls are in long dresses – the one on the left wears a pink skirt, a white blouse with flower details and puffy sleeves; as the one on the right wears a large pink dress with blue details and a sun hat. The overall canvas is ochre, and the artist leaves out many details of the scene. The loose and expressive brush strokes give an idea of what is happening in the scene, but little definition. In the far background, there are a couple of sailboats, and the water is represented with an almost watercolor effect of blue, purple and green pigments. On the right, Renoir placed a tree branch with swift strokes of brown, ochre and green pigments.
