Pierre Auguste Renoir

September 1996
Paperback

From School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Another easy-to-read biography of a famous artist. Full-color reproductions of 16 of Renoir's paintings appear throughout, including A Girl with a Watering Can, along with 9 works by his contemporaries. There are also five of Venezia's characteristic cartoons of speculative events from the artist's life (hiding under the queen's train to illustrate his childhood games in the courtyard of the Louvre, or greeting the public after his painting style became popular). Especially useful is the way the author shows Renoir's art in relation to the French Salon and to the other Impressionists. Paintings of the same scene by Renoir and Claude Monet are reproduced on facing pages, and do more to describe the Impressionist style than many paragraphs of text. The color reproduction is good; the typeface large and...

Book Description
This book transforms our perception of Renoir's biography, and his social and intellectual status. Renoir is revealed to be both a radical and a reactionary, bitterly opposing the factory system that stripped the worker of initiative, turning him into a machine. The book provides not only invaluable insights into Renoir, but also a much-needed comparative study of the decorative arts in nineteenth-century France and Britain. All eleven texts (articles and letters for newspapers, draft essays etc.) are published both in English with a commentary by Herbert, and in French. Four introductory chapters by Herbert precede the texts. Includes unpublished writings, including Renoir's Grammar of Art, long thought to be lost.

Renoir and Algeria

Book Description
Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841–1919) was the only Impressionist artist to paint Orientalist themes, yet little has been written about the two journeys he took to the French North African colony of Algeria in 1881 and 1882. There he created more than two dozen stunning works, depicting exotic scenes of ancient stone mosques, milling crowds at a festival in the Casbah, and spectacular palm fronds in the botanical garden. This important book, published to accompany a traveling exhibition organized by the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, assembles for the first time all of Renoir’s Algerian paintings as a coherent body of work. Handsomely illustrated, the book situates Renoir’s early studio Orientalism within the great tradition of French Orientalist painting. The landscapes and figure paintings...

From Kirkus Reviews
Readers learn in this pithy entry in the First Impressions series that one of todays most popular of the Impressionist painters was, in his lifetime, rejected from exhibitions and often struggled to make ends meet. Rayfield follows Renoir from his youth and his first job painting ceramics, to his old age, when his hands were so crippled with arthritis he could barely hold a brush. Although young readers may be more familiar with his early works (and his affiliation with painters such as Monet and Czanne), he continued to paint until his death. He experimented with new styles, and created many later portraits of his wife and children. Excellent and abundant full-color reproductions accompany the text, as well as black-and-white photographs of the a rtist and his home. The book includes commentary from Renoir's son,...
