Buste de jeune femme à l'épaule nue (Jeune fille à sa toilette)
An elegant depiction of a woman at her boudoir, Buste de jeune femme à l'épaule nue (Jeune fille à sa toilette) is testament to Renoir’s mastery of portraiture. Here, the artist delights in the extravagantly long and undone hair of his model, hinting at the subtle intimacy of this quotidian scene. Buste de jeune femme à l'épaule nue (Jeune fille à sa toilette) further showcases Renoir’s adeptness and skill in conveying the tangibility of his sitter’s flesh, drawing inspiration from the masters such as Titian, Rubens and Velázquez.
