Description
To our eyes, Renoir's La Promenade is simply an engaging and approachable Impressionist painting, as a man and woman take a walk in the woods. Indeed, little has been written about this painting, yet a close study of it reveals surprising details about the artistic, historical, and moral contexts in which it was created, as well as about the artist himself. "What did it mean to paint a picture like La Promenade in France in 1870, in the final months of Napoleon III's Second Empire?" asks art historian John House in this monograph, illustrated with 21 color plates, 31 black and white figures, and a color foldout. House argues that the work was a thorough rejection of the idealist world of academic art and a challenge to social and moral norms.
