This picture, which is in effect drawn directly with paint, was almost certainly executed out-of-doors about 1870. The site is in the village of Louveciennes, west of Paris, where Renoir's parents had a summer home. Camille Pissarro, who lived and worked in the village in 1869–70, painted a view of the same road (National Gallery, London). Renoir was well known for his figure paintings,the most classic brush of Renoir's famous painting is being sweet,laid-back atmosphere as well as plump, bright face and hands.
