The Doctors (10)
Dr. Georges de Bellio
In 1874, de Bellio attended the first exhibition of the impressionists without purchasing anything. Two years later however, during the second exhibition, he didn’t go home empty handed.
This is a self-portrait of Renoir that he bought from Victor Choquet during that exhibition of april 1876.
