Pierre Auguste Renoir painted La Loge in 1874, a significant period for the Impressionists. The group organized an art show called Salon des Refusés in 1874. At the time, the artist’s goal of achieving success was to be acknowledged by the prestigious Paris Salon, for they dictated what was considered “good” or “bad” art. Since most modern painters were not accepted in the exhibition, they formed a group to create an alternative platform for showing the work of refused artists for the general public.
Many beautiful artworks arrived from the Orient and served as a new source of inspiration for the Impressionists, as well as Renoir. The Japanese artists were famous for their woodcut prints done in the Ukiyo-e technique, bringing subjects of their ordinary life. These prints also featured the breathtaking landscapes of their surroundings with distant mountains, calm lakes, and blossoming trees. Their passion for nature took over Renoir and his colleagues, as they preferred to work en plein air, or outdoors. This also brought a love for contemporary subjects, like a night out at the theater, seen in La Loge.
This painting portrays a high-class couple enjoying the opera. The woman on the forefront is Nini Lopez, also known as Nini Fish-face, who modeled for Renoir at the time. The man in the background is identified as Renoir’s brother, Edmond. The spotlight is definitely on the female figure, as she seems to pose for the viewer’s enjoyment. Her expensive gown is loosely painted but with much precision and detail – it is white with black vertical stripes and floral detail on the front. She wears white gloves, has many pearls on her neckless and has a pair of golden binoculars in her hands.
Edmond sits in the shadow of the background, looking through his black binoculars. Instead of facing down at the theater, he is looking up at who is attending. This painting is a portrayal of the Parisian society of the time, where much gossip took place, as well as indulging in the aristocratic lifestyle. It is believed that La Loge lead Renoir to paint Dance at the Moulin de la Galette - a vivid reproduction of the vitality and energy of Paris in the late XIX century. These paintings show Renoir’s love for modern themes and how he portrayed them with an Impressionistic representation of great light and color.
