Catalogue Note

‘[Renoir’s] pictures are of that rare kind of which you only have to contemplate a tiny part in order to experience the same pleasure as that offered by a fragment of fresco, stained glass, silk or sculpture. There is not a square inch of any of his paintings that does not contain all the charm and inventiveness of his brush’ (Albert André quoted in Philippe Cros, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paris, 2003, p. 149)
