A Retrospective

edited by Nicholas Wadley

This is a special Beaux Arts reprint edition available at a discounted price in limited quantities only.

The Impressionist paintings of Pierre-August Renoir are universally beloved by art lovers and experts alike. His sensuous, glowing nudes, imtimate and lovingly painted portraits, exquisite flower arrangements, and scenes of everyday life radiate a special sense of warmth, and embody a unique quality of well- being.

As the most popular of the Impressionists, the books devoted to this artist are many, yet this publication casts fresh light on his life and work, and its wealth of colorplates and numerous documentary pictures in black and white add immediacy and dimension to the text.

Like its predecessors Monet: A Retrospective and Van Gogh: A Retrospective, this volume is composed of writings by Renoir's contemporaries, fellow artists, art historians, and celebrated authors up to the present day. Many of them are translated here for the first time.

Renoir: A Retrospective is a must for any scholar or lover of the work of this incomparable Impressionist artist.
