From Rijksmuseum Kroller-Muller, Otterlo:
Together with Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir is one of the central figures of impressionism. But while Monet prefers to paint landscapes in the open air, Renoir takes everyday life as the theme for his paintings. He frequently enjoys painting in cafés, which also brings him all kinds of commissions for portraits.
