Presso il Giardino Boboli è da pochissimo stata installata questa scultura in cui una mano d' uomo ed una di donna reggono questo albero d' ulivo, simbolo di pace. L' opera rappresenta anche un progetto contro il cambiamento climatico, sotto l' elgida dell' Onu. Resterà a Firenze solo per un mese, poi, sarà trasferita e donata al Parco Internazionale di Pietrasanta, in mostra permanente.

Pierre Auguste Renoir, Bal du Moulin de la Galette, 1876, oil on canvas, 131 x 175 cm, Musée d'Orsay, Paris.
Pierre Auguste Renoir, 1841-1919, was one of the leading impressionist painters. He tried to capture the light, movement and joy of modern life in his portraits, subjects from nature, scenes from urban and rural life and depiction of leisure activities. They are all executed in bold and vivid combinations of complementary colors and a technique of swift and broken brushstrokes. Renoir produced several works that are among the most popular paintings in art history. Among them are Luncheon of the Boating Party and this work Bal Du Moulin de la Galette. The painting was shown at the Impressionist Exhibition in 1877 and is your quintessential snapshot of modern life. Renoir loved dance scenes and the popular dancing garden at Moulin de la Galette in Montmartre was the place to be for young people on a Sunday. The sense of excitement and freedom is not only conveyed by the location and the lively and engaging figures but also by Renoir’s masterful brush work. Renoir demonstrates his mastery in capturing the effects of light and his skills as a colorist in using cool and warm colors throughout the crowded composition. The painting was owned by painter Gustave Caillebotte and was accepted by the French Republic after his death in lieu of taxes.
