Few artists took such delight in the depiction of the female form as did Renoir, and few were able to present it with such vitality. By the time of this painting, Renoir's personal style had developed to combine both the bright palette of his Impressionist works and the discipline of the classical masters. Here the artist has repeated the colors he used on the figure throughout the rest of the composition, thus unifying the nude and the landscape.
