Renoir began painting anecdotal portraits of women and children in 1876, a genre in which he excelled. A Girl with a Watering Can, for example, exemplifies a mature impressionist style suited to the unique demands of figure painting. Renoir's colors reflect the impressionist palette's freshness and brilliance, while his brushstrokes are more controlled and regular than in his landscapes, with even brushstrokes applied in delicate touches, particularly in the girl's face. The youngster is engulfed in a warm light by brilliant prismatic hues, which sweetly portray her naïve appeal.
The girl has been identified in several ways, but none of them are conclusive. Renoir most likely portrayed a local child whose attractive traits he admired. In other Renoir paintings, a girl with similar curly blond hair, dazzling blue eyes, plump pink cheeks, and smiling red lips appears, clothed similarly, implying that she was a favorite figure in the artist's repertory. A Girl with a Watering Can is a demonstration of the artist's grace and charm.
