Abstract:

This volume presents a survey of the life and works of French artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) who was a leading painter in the development of the Impressionist style. The warm, sensuous painting of Auguste Renoir was throughout his long life the art of a man on good terms with the world -- a world in which he saw little that was not beautiful. His delightful and color-rich depictions of dances, of picnics, of smiling children, of full-faced, often buxom young women, and of glowing nudes reflect at once the ideals of Impressionism and the contentment of their creator. Forty colorplates, each with a descriptive commentary providing both insight and anecdote, along with nearly thirty black-and-white reproductions of drawings and studies present a rich and representative sampling of Renoir's art.
