The open-air cafés of suburban Bougival, on the Seine outside Paris, were popular recreation spots for city dwellers, including the Impressionist painters. Renoir, who was primarily a figure painter, uses intense color and lush brushwork to heighten the sense of pleasure conveyed by the whirling couple who dominate this rendered woven wall tapestry. The woman's face, framed by her red bonnet, is the focus of attention, both ours and her companion's.
