Chicago Museum of Art: Renoir's "Woman at the Piano"

It was in the mid-1800's that the piano became a popular instrument for home music.  By 1875-1876, when this was painted, almost every bourgeois home had an upright. 

I liked this piece a lot.  Even the candle holder, candle and the notes on the music caught my eye.

This piece made me wish I had talent to draw and paint.   Unfortunately, I do not!
