Woman Braiding her hair by Renoir


Renoir was able to bring life and youth to the latter part of the nineteenth century. Women were otherwise dour and much like a troop of old maids. Their hair was a treasure, and those who chose to keep it long had much work to make it presentable. The simpler hairdos of the young helped to emphasize youthfulness. Red was still a color of excitement, and artists would often enjoy rendering them for their patrons. The mood was peaceful and domestic, and it was suggested by the woman's concern over braiding her hair, that this was the most she might have to attend to in an otherwise dangerous and difficult man's world. 15hqqy.
