Some of my favorite paintings by Renoir give this
image a twinge of humor.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir (Feb.25, 1841 - Dec.3, 1919)
He was a French artist who was a leading painter in the
development of the Impressionist style. As a celebrator
of beauty, and especially feminine senuality, it has been
said that "Renoir is the final representative of a tradition
which runs directly from Rubens to Watteau.
