During his career, Renoir wrote a lot of pictures, where the main role was played by girls. Suffice it to recall the portraits of Romaine Lako and Mademoiselle Legrand, the painting “Walk”, “Girl with a skipping rope”, “pink and blue”, etc.
The picture reminds accidentally made a photo – a girl does not even look at the audience, enthusiastically looking at something in the distance, holding hands watering can that almost merges with its bright attire.
Today it is impossible to say with certainty what the heroine. Most likely, Renoir, and he did not know her name, because otherwise it would have in the title picture, as it has done in previous works. Art historians assumed that this random girl snatched attentive gaze of the painter, perhaps his neighbor.
Technique, which is full of the picture shows the late period of Impressionism. Small strokes are converted space in the complex woven together from the smallest shades of texture, sparkling and expressive. Smooth transitions semitones eliminates any hint of a path or a clear picture line. Renoir is considered the color of a self-sufficient tool for creating paintings, and “Girl with a watering can” yet another confirmation of this.
