On a bay ringed by cliffs, fashionable young Parisians enjoy the sun and sea. The picture is loosely defined, and unfinished at its right and upper edges. But the artist didn’t paint it en plain air.Renoir spent the summer of 1883 sketching the beaches of Guernsey, an island in the English Channel. He painted this scene back in his Paris studio, from studies of children playing that he had made during his stay.
