The swing (french: la balanoire) is an oil on canvas painting by the french artist pierre-auguste renoir who was a leading exponent of the impressionist style. The painting was executed in 1876. The painting measures 41 x 23 centimetres and is in the musee d'orsay. Renoir executed the painting in what are now the musee de montmartre gardens. He had rented a cottage in the gardens so that he be could closer to the moulin de la galette where he was engaged in 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. Renoir's portrayal of luminous color, skillfully varied brushstrokes, nuances of light and shadow all worked together to form a warm sensuality.
