Renoir, his life, art, and letters by Barbara Ehrlich White ( Book )
11 editions published between 1984 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume contrasts the life of the French artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) -- his personal struggles against crippling arthritis and the disfavor of Renoir's patrons when he developed a new style -- with the flood of expression that his paintings revealed. With 391 illustrations this book covers the full scope of Renoir's work, from paintings and watercolors to sketches and drawings, including portraiture, landscapes, and still lives. Documented throughout, the book contains hundreds of Renoir's personal letters, many of them previously unpublished, as well as letters of friends and patrons
Renoir's portraits : impressions of an age by Colin B Bailey ( Book )
10 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 1,009 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Of all the Impressionists, only Pierre-Auguste Renoir earned distinction as a professional portrait painter. For more than fifty years Renoir explored the genre of portraiture, experimenting and pressing forward in his determination to become -- as he explained to Monet in January 1884 - "a painter of figures." This sumptuously illustrated book is the first devoted exclusively to Renoir's portraiture, bringing together the finest examplesof the portraits he painted during each period of his prolific career. In these delightful paintings Renoir created uniquely endearing and enduring images of pleasure, comfort, and prosperity."--Amazon

5 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
John House examines the many facets of the work and what it reveals about Renoir as a man and artist. He asks, "What did it mean to paint a picture like La Promenade in France in 1870, in the final months of Napoleon III's Second Empire?" The reader is invited to look at the canvas - and Impressionism - as a rejection of the idealist world of academic art and as a challenge to contemporary social norms

Renoir by Anne Distel ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this elegant readable monograph, noted art historian Anne Distel offers an illuminating new account of the life of Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919). She deftly narrates Renoir's rise from apprentice porcelain painter to celebrated artist, quoting judiciously from the painter's own vivid letters from reviews by contemporary critics. In addition, she offers keen analyses of Renoir's style at each stage of his sixty-year career. And Distel does not consider that career in isolation, but uses the latest discoveries in the documentary evidence - some of them her own - to re-create the artistic and social milieus in which Renoir worked. She traces his relationships with other artists, both Manet and his fellow Impressionists and older contemporaries like Corot, Diaz, Courbet and Daubigny, as well as the younger Bonnard, Matisse, and Picasso; with writers like Zola, Mallarme, and Mirbeau; with his dealers, like Paul Durand-Ruel, Ambroise Vollard and the Bernheim brothers; and not least, with the patrons who were so important to his career, like the Charpentiers, the Berards, Charles Ephrussi, Maurice Gangnat and Dr. Barnes." "Distel's insightful text is illustrated throughout with some three hundred splendid color reproductions of the artist's finest and most representative works plus important archival photographs. This is the definitive monograph on one of the world's best-loved artists."--Jacket

Arguably the greatest of all the Impressionist artists, Pierre August Renoir's brilliant Le Moulin de la Gallette created immense controversy in its day. Famous for his use of hot reds, orange and gold to portray nudes in sunlight, Renoir's later life was blighted by arthritis, which crippled his hands.

Renoir in the Barnes Foundation by Barnes Foundation ( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Barnes Foundation is home to the world's largest collection of paintings by Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919). Dr. Albert C. Barnes, a Philadelphia scientist who made his fortune in pharmaceuticals, established the Foundation in 1922 in Merion, Pennsylvania, as an educational institution devoted to the appreciation of the fine arts. A passionate supporter of European modernism, Barnes built a collection that was virtually unrivaled, with massive holdings by Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso. But it was Renoir that Barnes admired above all other artists; he thought of him as a god and collected his work tenaciously, amassing 181 works by the painter between 1912 and 1942. All of these Renoirs are included in this lavishly illustrated book. Renoir in the Barnes Foundation tells the fascinating story of Barnes's obsession with the Impressionist master's late works, while offering illuminating new scholarship on the works themselves. Authors Martha Lucy and John House look closely at the key paintings in the collection, placing them in the wider contexts of contemporary artistic, aesthetic, and theoretical debates. The first volume to publish the entirety of Barnes's astonishing Renoir collection, Renoir in the Barnes Foundation is also an engaging study of the artist's critical--and often contested--role in the development of modern art
