"Pierre-Auguste Renoir painted this portrait of his fellow Impressionist Alfred Sisley at their friend Claude Monet's house in Argenteuil. Although artist's portraits and self-portraits and self-portraits often include professional attributes, such as a palette and brushes, here the emphasis is on the gentleness and elegance that were part of the sitter's character."
