Les Parapluies by Pierre Auguste Renoir

The Umbrellas is a painting by Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919), a painter of French

Impressionism between 1881-1886, the work is exhibited at the National Gallery in
London. The painting represents a city scene at the moment it starts to rain with multiple
characters, almost all with umbrellas, except for the woman who appears in the
foreground and two small girls on the right side of the painting. The composition plays
with circular and semicircular shapes and the bluish color predominates. The form of
human representation is very typical of Renoir, marked by the softness, warmth and the
idea of happiness of the characters that contrasts with the grayish environment of the rainy

Renoir represents in this work a scene of the urban life of the big city, a typical theme of
Impressionist painting. The issue has been analyzed as the isolation of a society in
transformation since it seems that the characters have no relationship and are ignored, as
the young woman who ignores the requirements of the gentleman or girl in the hoop
ignores her mother and sister.
