This masterpiece, exceptionally displayed at the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Draguignan, offers the opportunity to deepen our understanding of the painter Auguste Renoir and his role in the Impressionist movement, with a particular focus on the theme of portraiture.

On the occasion of the centenary of the first Impressionist exhibition, the Museum of Fine Arts in Draguignan will also present other works by Auguste Renoir:

One of his major works, ‘L’Enfant au biscuit,’ an oil painting depicting the artist’s son, Jean. The painting will be exhibited alongside a lithograph made by Renoir at the request of Ambroise Vollard for his third album of original prints; An engraving, ‘La Baigneuse debout à mi-jambe,’ whose iconography is very similar to that of the Parisian portrait.

The combination of these four works will allow visitors to appreciate the freedom of brushwork and the great modernity of Auguste Renoir.
