Child With Cat Slim Case For Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016)
By: Pierre Auguste Renoir
‘L’enfant au chat’ by Renoir is a portrait of Julie Manet, niece ofEdouard Manet the painter - another cat worshipper.
Painted in 1887, this development in Renoir’s style - characterisedby a new attention to line and drawing - was not much appreciatedby many of his contemporaries.
Degas, on seeing the painting, commented that ‘by doing roundfaces, Renoir produces flower pots’.
