The Umbrellas is an oil-on-canvas painting by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, painted in two phases in the 1880s. Renoir began the painting in about 1880-1, using the loose brushwork and bright palette typical of the Impressionist movement. In about 1885-6, after losing his attachment to Impressionism and drawing inspiration from classical art he had seen in Italy and the works of Ingres and Cézanne, he reworked parts of the painting, particularly the principal female figure to the left of the frame, in a more classical linear style using more muted colours, and added the background and the umbrellas themselves. X-ray photography has shown that the clothing of the female figure was originally different: she wore a hat and her dress had horizontal rows of frills, with white lace at its cuffs and collar, suggesting that she was middle class, whereas the simpler clothes in the revised painting mark her out as a member of the working class, a grisette not a bourgeoise. The x-ray analysis and the changing fashions allow the periods of work to be dated with reasonable accuracy.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841 – 1919), a French artist, was a leading painter in the development of the Impressionist style.

He enjoyed depicting his friends and lovers with expressive candor, conveying a youthful exuberance and intimate charm

And such as a celebrator of beauty, especially feminine sensuality, it has been said that "Renoir is the final representative of a tradition which runs directly from Rubens to Watteau".
