Auguste Renoir - Reclining Nude, 1883. Oil on canvas 

Nudes and the grand tradition of classical art preoccupied Renoir in the 1880s. In this painting, he paid homage to Ingres’s Grande Odalisque (Musée du Louvre, Paris), although he transformed Ingres’s cool courtesan into a healthy, pink-cheeked girl, and the harem into an Impressionist landscape reminiscent of the Channel coast.
