Dance in the Country – Pierre Auguste Renoir
The painting expresses a carefree happy moment in this young couples romance. They dance together lightly, and the woman’s attire suggest a feeling of springtime. They are engrossed in the music and look at each other as they dance. The movement is light and the background table suggests they have been dining outside. The fallen hat suggests to me, the man is enjoying himself so much, he doesn’t even bother to pick up his.
The painting can be seen at Musée d’Orsay, Paris, France.
