Esquisse pour Oedipe (Sketch for Oedipus) is a painting created by Pierre-Auguste Renoir in 1895. The artwork showcases a classical subject matter, as it depicts the story of Oedipus from ancient Greek mythology. The sketch represents a scene where Oedipus, the young prince, is sitting on a rock and discovering the truth about his parentage. Renoir's painting has a unique style that combines elements of Impressionism with the classical subject matter. He uses soft colors and loose brushstrokes to create a dreamlike atmosphere, which emphasizes the tragic aspects of the story rather than its details. The focus in this work is more on the emotional state of Oedipus rather than the narrative itself. In Esquisse pour Oedipe, Renoir has created a hauntingly beautiful painting that captures the essence of the tragic figure of Oedipus and his realization of the dark secrets he had unwittingly uncovered.
