The painting "Swing" dated 1876. The work of art belongs to the brush of the famous French master Pierre Auguste Renoir. The picture has a size of 92x73 cm, and with a frame of 111x92 cm.
In 1877, the canvas was presented at the 3rd exhibition of the Impressionists. From the same year, the painting found its place in the collection of Gustave Caillebotte. He was a marshal of France, as well as an artist. After Gustave died, the painting was the property of the state. Since 1894, the canvas was given to the Museum in the Luxembourg Gardens. The picture got to the Louvre only in 1929. In the gallery de Je Pom "Swing" exhibited since 1947. From 1986 to the present day, a work of art is in the Musee d'Orsay.
As you know, the favorite model Renaura was Margarita Legrand. It is assumed that it was she who posed for the master for the famous work "Swing". The canvas depicts a beautiful young lady who stands on a swing, while she grabs the ropes with her hands so as not to fall. She is dressed in a white and blue dress with flirty bows.
The man is facing the woman, and the man is standing with his back to the viewer. Apparently, they are talking about something. The young man is wearing a blue jacket and a straw hat. Behind them in the background is a lively conversation led by a group of people walking.
On the left side of the canvas is another man looking out from behind a tree. And next to him is a little blond girl. Which with genuine delight contemplates a charming lady riding on a swing. The clean look of the child gives a certain charm to the plot.
Renoir did not stint on bright colors and generously endowed them with a canvas. The picture is made in blue, green and white gamma. Sunbeams make their way through the crowns of the trees, while adding to the plot of liveliness. They lay glare on the depicted figures, on their hats and clothes.
