2019 $1 Niue Silver ½oz Renoire Bal du Moulin de La Galette Proof Coin Rare UNC
From the Mint of Poland, this coin commemorates the 100th Anniversary of Pierre-Auguste Renoir's Death. The coin has as insanely low mintage of only 500, so it is incredibly RARE!! It depicts a unique design inspired by the artist's works - A wonderful coloured image of the masterpiece "Bal du moulin de la Galette" ("The ball of the Moulin de la Galette"). The painting depicts a typical Sunday afternoon at the original Moulin de la Galette in the district of Montmartre in Paris. In the late 19th century, working class Parisians would dress up and spend time there dancing, drinking, and eating galettes into the evening. Like other works of Renoir's early maturity, Bal du moulin de la Galette is a typically Impressionist snapshot of real life. It shows a richness of form, a fluidity of brush stroke, and a flickering, sun-dappled light. The coin belongs to the series of 12 coins that was specially created for 100th anniversary of Renoir's death. Renoir is one of the main representatives of the impressionist movement whose paintings are composed of touches of colour, set in small commas, where black and line do not exist. During this period, he painted scenes from modern popular and social life, portraits, landscapes. From 1880, Renoir began to change the way he painted. He stands out from the impressionists; his style becomes more classical.
