In the summer of 1868, Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir set their easels side-by-side, and both composed paintings of the scene before them at La Grenouillere, which was a fashionable place for citizens to dine and boat in Paris. The paintings above show the contrast between the two artists’ perception of the scene—Renoir [top] seems to focus more on the people of the scene itself, whereas the most striking part of Monet’s piece [bottom] is the depth and effects of the water against the canvas.

Here, we have two masters of Impressionism, though their differences in technique and attention to detail are striking.
