Child with a Whip.jpg

St. Petersburg, Russia

Delicate brush strokes of blue and white lead to a dramatic image in Renoir's 1885 Child with a Whip. A sense of motion in the child's play is imparted from the large, swirling balls of color that seem to emanate from the flower bed and then surround the girl.

IF the shape of the girl's eyes, the delicate blue cast amidst subtle pastels, the garden setting, and the sense of French sophistication even in a little girl did not reveal the name of the artist, the signature at the bottom is that of Renoir and it is dated 1885.
