The Dance at the Moulin de la Galette is a work of the French painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir and it is considered one of the highest masterpieces of early Impressionism. The original painting was made in 1876 and is currently preserved at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. In this picture Renoir wants to portray social life during Belle Époque, using as a reference the “Moulin de la Galette”, a famous restaurant in the Parisian district of Montmartre. For its production, the artist had been attending this café for six months and finally he made his friends and some of the locals pose, succeeding in obtaining an extraordinary truthfulness in his figures. Among the represented characters there are the model Jeanne and her sister Estelle (the two women who constitute the focal point of the canvas), among the dancers there are Lhote, Lestringuez, Gervex, while in the group sitting at the table there are the writer Georges Rivière, Franc Lamy and Goenuette. Through the painting, which has also become a symbol of Impressionism, it shines a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere: all the people are smiling and each of them seems to express an apparently thoughtless life. The setting is almost surreal: the chandeliers seem to hang from the sky, the dancers give us the impression of being suspended in the air, the colours mix and overlap each other. His technique as an Impressionist painter provides for quick, but filamentous and sinuous brushstrokes. Thus, we can note a fragmented light which infuses great energy at the work, but at the same time it triggers a relaxed and calm sensation in the observer.
