This winter and spring The Frick Collection presents an exhibition of nine iconic
Impressionist paintings by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, offering the first
comprehensive study of the artist’s engagement with the full-length format. Its
use was associated with the official Paris Salon from the mid-1870s to mid-
1880s, the decade that saw the emergence of a fully fledged Impressionist
aesthetic. The project was inspired by Renoir’s La Promenade of 1875–76, the
most significant Impressionist work in the Frick’s permanent collection.
