Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0760723273, Hardcover)

Pierre Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) is now universally acclaimed: museums pride themselves on his paintings, crowds flock to his retrospectives. His work shows art at its most light-hearted, sensual and luminous. Renoir never wanted anything ugly in his paintings, nor any dramatic action. "I like pictures which make me want to wander through them when it's a landscape," he said, "or pass my hand over breast or back if it's a woman." Renoir's entire oeuvre is dominated by the depiction of women. Again and again he painted "these faunesses with their pouting lips" (Mallarme) and invented a new image of feminity.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:17:58 -0400)

A biography of the French painter and leader in the development of the impressionist style whose works seem full of joy, not only because of their subject matter, but because of the artist's use of light and color.
