An 1874 oil on canvas, La Loge (The Theatre Box), by Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) the French impressionist painter. Renoir here uses a mix of techniques with the lady's face painted meticulously while other areas are more impressionistic. The gentleman is gazing through his binoculars but not at the stage (which would be below him). Perhaps he is gazing at another woman in another box, explaining the sadness in the lady's eyes.
