This 1862 Monet shows the high society of Paris out for the day in the grounds of Napoleon III's Tuilleries palace.

Groovin' on a Sunday Afternoon

The ladies in front left are portrayed in chic daywear with bonnets and coats that envelop their voluminous crinolines. The lady to the right wears a poke bonnet while her companion wears a less expansive bonnet and a black veil. Others are dressed in hats among the penguin-like men with their stovepipe hats. The short dresses of the girls in the foreground contrasts with the bundled ladies to the right.
