#10 Bain a la Grenouillere

La Grenouillere was a popular middle class boating and bathing resort of those times. Monet wrote on September 25, 1869, “I do have a dream, a painting, the baths of La Grenouillere, for which I have made some bad sketches, but it is only a dream.” The painting below and one in the London National Gallery are probably one of the sketches with the original tableau having been lost. Renoir, who was very close to Monet at the time, also wanted to do this painting. Year: 1869
