This oil on canvas painting is a fine example of the Impressionism movement and falls within the portrait genre. As of the last known documentation, the artwork resides within a private collection.

Renoir’s use of quick, visible brushstrokes imbues the portrait with a sense of immediacy and intimacy, characteristic of Impressionist technique. The color palette is muted, dominated by earthy, warm tones that suggest both simplicity and depth, around the figure who is highlighted with more contrast.
