Writing about Renoir’s last masterpiece Les Baigneuses, which reflects the artist’s delight in painting his young model, John House commented: ‘According to Albert André, the beauty of this “superb redhead” was the incentive he needed to undertake his last paintings’ (John House in Renoir (exhibition catalogue), Hayward Gallery, London; Galeries Nationales du Grand Palais, Paris & Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, 1985-86, p. 288). Buste de femme (Andrée en chapeau lisant, la tête tournée à droite) ultimately stands as a testament to Renoir’s superlative ability to capture the beauty of youth in its prime.
