Description
Pierre-Auguste Renoir's La Loge (The Theatre Box) from 1874 is a masterpiece of impressionism and a highlight of the collection at the Courtauld Gallery in London. In its depiction of an elegant couple on display in a box seat, the painting epitomizes the impressionists' interest in the spectacle of modern life, mirrored in the complex play of gazes enacted by the two figures. Comparing the work with other "loge paintings" by contemporaries like Mary Cassatt and Edgar Degas, as well as engravings from such Parisian fashion journals of the day as La Mode Illustree, this exhibit catalog illuminates Renoir's perspective on Paris society, as he turns away from the stage to see the real show of the wealthier patrons' status and relationships on display in the theater's box seats.
