Image and Description from Wiki:  "La Grenouillère, the frog pond, was a popular place for bathing and recreation among Paris’ workers and middle class. It is situated in Bougival, just west of the capital. In September 1869 Auguste Renoir and Claude Monet spent a few days here together. They painted the same subject several times from different perspectives. One of Monet’s painting can be seen at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York"
