Description: Portrait of Louis Valtat, French Fauvist Painter, 1869-1952 and close friend of Renoir, aged 35 by Pierre Auguste-Renoir (French, 1841-1919), signed in stone, lithograph on paper 11 ¾” x 9 3/8”, from Douze Lithographies Originals de Pierre-August Renoir (D.; S.38), published by Ambroise Vollard. A comfortable and contemplative Valtat sits facing right with his right hand on the back of his chair, his arm and elbow braced over the edge.
