Renoir’s early portraits evidence the academic training he received at the École des Beaux-Arts in the studio of Charles Gleyre between 1861 and 1864. Early influences upon his art were the paintings of Barbizon artists such as Diaz and Rousseau, as well as Courbet. It was in Gleyre’s studio that he met fellow innovators such as Bazille, Monet and Sisley and moved past the prevailing academic tendencies of the salon toward the development of Impressionism.
