Early in his career, before he found a real market for his work, Renoir made ends meet by painting portraits for the elite of the Paris art world. Seen here is Delphine Legrand, the daughter of the art dealer Alphonse Legrand, who helped mount the second impressionist exhibition in 1876. Renoir's depiction of Delphine's bright blue dress exemplifies the radical brushwork introduced by the impressionists: brushstrokes are lively, moving in different directions, each one visible and unblended.
