"Dance at Bougival" was made in 1883. This painting by Renoir is now kept in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston; it was paid $ 150,000 in 1937. The detail of our canvas represents a man and a young woman dancing embraced in a district of Paris near the Seine, Bougival. The two protagonists of the scene are Suzanne Valadon and Paul Lhote. Paul was a dancer who became a great friend of the painter (he was also a witness to his marriage) and is portrayed in several other paintings by Renoir, including the famous "Breakfast of the rowers". Suzanne, whose real name was Marie Clementine, was an unruly and very lively girl, sent to the college by her mother, a washerwoman. Her busy life forced her to many jobs, from modelling, ironing, to painter. She became a mother at just eighteen. The woman, represented with red hair and a brightly colour headdress, attracts all looks towards herself and captures the attention also towards her companion. The use of warm and energetic shades to represent the subjects highlights the amorous game of looks of the two dancers. Paul appears very audacious, in contrast to Suzanne, elusive and shy. Renoir, like other Impressionist painters, used to paint scenes of Parisian social life at the end of the nineteenth century. In 1882 two other works were commissioned with the theme of dance: "Country Dance", in which the protagonist depicted is Aline Charigot, who will become his wife, and "City Dance", whose protagonists are always Suzanne Valadon and Paul Lhote. In 1864 Renoir revolutionized the concept of traditional art, experimenting with the method of painting "en plein air", textually translated "in the open air". For the artist, a painting had to express beauty, and everything that lives is beautiful and therefore deserves to be represented.
