OIL PAINTING: Bathing at la Grenouillere
La Grenouillere was a riverside bathing and boating resort, popular among weekend trippers during the Second Empire (1852-1870) and after. It had a floating restaurant which is seen in another of the paintings executed by Monet during his two-month stay there in the late summer of 1869, and it appears in similar works by Renoir
often painted sitting alongside Monet. The resort was situated on the Ile de Croissy, facing the left bank of the Seine.
