The artwork captures the visage of a young woman, presented with a soft focus that is typical of Impressionist works. The subject’s delicate features are rendered with a blend of warm and cool tones, depicting a sense of depth and dimensionality. Renoir’s use of quick, loose brushstrokes imparts a sense of immediacy and liveliness to the portrayal.
