Pierre-Auguste Renoir, In the Garden, 1885, 170.5 cm × 112.5 cm, Oil on canvas. The look of the young man shows his intentions: he is asking for this young woman's hand and heart. Her response reflects her thoughts of the future. An unusual detail for Renoir here is the cross-worn by the young woman; it is placed in the center of the composition, creating the focused meaning.
