(From info card)
"Renoir's portraits depart from the Impressionist style, which employs quickly rendered brushstrokes to suggest fleeting light effects (such as La Promenade, nearby). Here solid forms, vibrant colors, and rich patterns capture the likeness and spirit of the fashionable sitter. Albert Cahen d'Anvers (1846-1903), a composer best known for light opera, enjoyed access to the elite social circles of his day. Renoir portrayed him at Wargemont, the country home of Paul Bérard, a Parisian diplomat who championed the artist."
