The Story Behind Renoir’s ‘Bal du moulin de la Galette’


Bal du moulin de la Galette by Pierre-Auguste Renoir


Pierre-Auguste Renoir, “Bal du moulin de la Galette,” 1876


In the 19th century, the Impressionists pioneered a new way to paint world. Characterized by loose brushwork and a vivid color palette, their paintings challenged traditional notions of the practice. In addition to introducing new stylistic considerations, Impressionist artists are renowned for another unprecedented act: bringing painting out of the studio and into the sunlight.

Bal du moulin de la Galette by Pierre-Auguste Renoir



Renoir is known for his gauzy brushwork, vivid color palette, and interest in light—all of which he used to produce paintings of his favorite subject matter: people. This approach is evident in Bal du moulin de la Galette; dappled by sunlight, the figures are rendered in loose, luminous brushstrokes. Though many of the subjects are clad in black suits and dresses, a closer look reveals that even these darker hues are made up of a kaleidoscopic collection of colors. “I've been 40 years discovering that the queen of all colors was black,” he famously explained.

I grew up around art, my father painted, my grandma run the theatrical spectacles. 

I often sat and listened to rehearsals.

I love both painted art and clever shows ... can't wait to Paradise to do more in this area.  

Family photo is from one rehearsal, my mum is on the very left. 



Man was created as an intelligent creature with the desire to explore and understand :)
