    In this engaging lecture, Gloria Groom explores the role of Renior’s mistress, Lise Tréhot, in fashioning his artistic career. Between 1866 and 1872 Renoir featured Tréhot in more than thirty paintings, ranging from small and intimate genre scenes to the full-length canvases that he exhibited. Tréhot, wearing the most up-to-the-minute fashions, served as Renoir’s calling card by advertising the artist as a painter of modern life, and especially of the fashionable Parisienne."
