Renoir's favourite scenes were from the world of entertainment such as dance halls, cafes, concerts, and the theatre. His pictures radiate human warmth with their happy temperament. The viewer's role is one of a casual stroller, taking in a slice of life in passing. He was known for his treatment of light for mood as well as harmony of line. [MH] {NR}
