The umbrellas is an oil-on-canvas painting by pierre-auguste renoir, painted in two phases in the 1880s. Renoir began the painting in about 1880-1, using the loose brushwork and bright palette typical of the impressionist movement. In about 1885-6, after losing his attachment to impressionism and drawing inspiration from classical art he had seen in italy and the works of ingres and cezanne, he reworked parts of the painting, particularly the principal female figure to the left of the frame, in a more classical linear style using more muted colours, and added the background and the umbrellas themselves. 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.
