La Grenouillere – Monet V Renoir
Having just come back from Giverny, I thought I’d have to include a post on Monet having seen his wonderful gardens and house. Monet’s & Renoir’s paintings of La Grenouillere really interest me as we’ve done art reproductions of both and they’re surprisingly different. Surprising, as they painted their paintings at the same time on the same day whilst they were together one Sunday. La Grenouillere actually means ‘the frog pond’ and was a popular spot for young Parisians to dance and go for a swim. The round floating dock in the centre of both paintings was called ‘le camembert’ because it reminded them of the French cheese.

As you can see from looking at the two paintings even though Monet and Renoir have painted the same scene, they are remarkably different. For instance, Monet has captured two ladies in long swimming costumes, which you can’t see in Renoir’s painting. Whilst, if you look carefully at Renoir’s La Grenouillere, he amongst other things has managed to paint 2 dogs and a sail boat, which is not seen in Monet’s.
Fabulous Masterpieces has painted a lot of art reproductions of La Grenouillere over the years, below is an example of our Renoir La Grenouillere hand-painted in oils onto canvas.
