Bal du moulin de la Galette: Pierre-Auguste Renoir

This is a painting created by French artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir in 1876, it is called "Bal du moulin de la Galette". The painting depicts a Sunday afternoon in Paris at the Moulin de la Galette. In the painting we see all of the people dancing, drinking, and eating. I chose this painting because I love the way Renoir used the lighting to influence how he painted a scene. I also chose this painting because I love how the fluid motion of his brushstrokes create a warm and somewhat blurred vision.
