The moulin de la galette is a windmill and associated businesses situated near the top of the district of montmartre in paris. Since the 17th century the windmill has been known for more than just its milling capabilities. Nineteenth century owners and millers, the debray family, made a brown bread, galette, which became popular and thus the name of the windmill and its businesses, which have included a famous guinguette and restaurant. In the 19th century, le moulin de la galette, represented diversion for parisians seeking entertainment, a glass of wine and bread made from flour ground by the windmill. Artists, such as renoir, van gogh, and pissarro have immortalized le moulin de la galette; likely the most notable was renoir's festive painting, bal du moulin de la galette.Living in the moment and indulging in life's temporal pleasures were among pierre auguste renoir favorite themes, and he expressed them more than any other impressionist. A renowned leader of the impressionist movement, renoir (1841 - 1919) enjoyed depicting his friends and lovers with expressive candor, conveying a youthful exuberance and intimate charm that suggests visions of an earthly paradise. By focusing on the 'here and now' of his time, these fleeting moments become relished nostalgic memories.
