This weekend is your final chance to visit #InventingImpressionism http://bit.ly/1HWeJBr
In the first room, you will find this painting by #Renoir, which once hung in Paul Durand-Ruel's home. Durand-Ruel steadfastly refused all offers to buy it.

#Renoir had been a loyal friend of Paul Durand-Ruel’s for almost 40 years by the time he painted his portrait in 1910. You can see it at #InventingImpressionism http://bit.ly/1JbgyMh

This oil sketch (above) is one of several Seurat made for his monumental painting, 'Bathers at Asnières', of 1884 (below). He's focused on the figures rather than the landscape setting.

Manet uses strong light to maximise the contrast between the skin, silver hair and white shirt of this reader with the darkness of his surrounds. The sitter was an artist friend, Joseph Gall.
