Chicago Museum of Art: Renoir's "Alfred Sisley"

Renoir painted this portrait of Alfred Sisley at Monet's home in Argenteuil in 1876. 

Sisley was also an impressionist painter and friend.

Interestingly, there is little in the scene to indicate Sisley's passion for painting.  There is no paint, no brush, no canvas!
