A Girl with a Watering Can is an Impressionist painting by Pierre-Auguste Renoir from 1876. The work was apparently painted in Monet's famous garden at Argenteuil.This painting is of Mademoiselle Leclere in her smartest blue dress.There is a certain empathy in this painting as Renoir,as a simple and innocent minded man could connect well with children.The child has golden hair which is juxtaposed with the green of the background and her pretty blue dress which creates freshness in the painting.The painting is lovely even though it has a certain stiffness to it: this child after all would have been posing for rather a long time.The childs form is quite dissolving as was popular in impressionist paintings and this gives the painting a sense of movement.Although this is a posed picture, the snapshot effect of the painting can still be seen reasonably clearly as the little girl is not looking directly at the audience. This little girl was probably the daughter of one of the customers of Renoir's works so she was of course upper class.Notice there has been primary colors juxtaposed together for example in the grasses in the foreground. This was because Renoir's style of painting included this technique to create freshness and help the viewers eye to mix the primary colors together and create shades of complementary tones.these complementary tones have also been placed in the middle are of grass- the orange balancing out the blue tones of the girls dress. The delicate flowery brushwork in this painting shows the influence of Renoir's time spent as a porcelain painter when he was a young man.Rather than blend his colors, Renoir has applied them in individual touches that dissolve edges and seem to shimmer with light.
