This profile view of the first flutist and concertmaster of the Paris Opéra, Joseph-Henri Altès, is one of Degas's many portraits of musicians. As a "little joke," Lousine Havemeyer, who originally owned the painting, hung it between two Renaissance portraits and was quite pleased to find that "the modern master held his own."
