Pierre-Auguste Renoir | The Lovers, 1875

The resting couple of lovers amidst nature in The Lovers painting is rendered dynamically by quickly alternating colourful spots that imitate the trembling atmospheric light.
The way the two figures are modelled are specific for Renoir: the actress Henriette Henriot and the painter Pierre Frank-Lamy.
Renoir held a special position among impressionists, mostly landscape painters, because he frequently focused on figural topics. | Source: © National Gallery Prague
