9780810996076: Renoir: His Life, Art, and Letters
From the Publisher:

During the seventy-eight years of his life, Pierre-Auguste Renoir painted thousands of paintings and made uncounted drawings, watercolors and sketches. Behind this prodigious output, rivaling even Picasso's, is a lifetime of struggle and anguish seldom hinted at in the work of this happy painter. His efforts to find a new art to match his vision of the world created by light and warmth are vividly and intimately chronicled here through his letters and those of his friends and patrons. Barbara Ehrlich White, a renowned Renoir scholar, devoted more than twenty years to searching out unpublished letters and documents that reveal his life as an artist and as a man. First published in 1984, her book was praised for its comprehensive yet intimate history of Renoir's life and work. Now back in print, White's classic book brilliantly contrasts the story of Renoir's personal battle against crippling arthritis - as well as his loss of favor with old patrons, dissatisfied when he developed a new style - with the joyous gratification of the senses that flows from his canvases. She captures both the underlying traditionalism of his training and his audacious breakthrough in style, subject and technique. This uniquely documented tribute to Renoir, with its lavish illustrations, including three gatefolds, is the essential Renoir.

About the Author:

Barbara Ehrlich White, often called Mrs. Renoir,A" has been collecting letters by, to, and about Renoir since 1961. For this research, she has made numerous trips to France where she interviewed family members and friends of the artist and visited places where he lived and painted. White taught art history at Tufts University from 1965 through 2002 and now continues there as Adjunct Professor Emerita of Art History. Her book Renoir: His Life, Art, and Letters was first published by Abrams in 1984 and in French by Flammarion in 1985. White is also the author of Impressionists Side By Side: Their Friendships, Rivalries, and Artistic Exchanges, published in 1996 by Knopf and in German by Droemer/Knaur Verlag. She wrote two Renoir television scripts, one of which won an Emmy. She has lectured about Renoir throughout the United States and France. Currently, White is writing a book about Renoir and his family.

Descripción Harry N. Abrams, 2010. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: During the seventy-eight years of his life, Pierre-Auguste Renoir painted thousands of paintings and made uncounted drawings, watercolors, and sketches. Behind this prodigious output, rivaling even Picasso's, is a lifetime of struggle and anguish seldom hinted at in the work of this "happy painter." His efforts to find a new art to match his vision of the world created by light and warmth are vividly and intimately chronicled here through his letters and those of his friends and patrons. Barbara Ehrlich White, a renowned Renoir scholar, devoted more than twenty years to searching out unpublished letters and documents that reveal his life as an artist and as a man. First published in 1984, her book was praised for its comprehensive yet intimate history of Renoir's life and work. Now back in print, White's classic book brilliantly contrasts the story of Renoir's personal battle against crippling arthritisas well as his loss of favor with old patrons dissatisfied when he developed a new stylewith the joyous gratification of the senses that flows from his canvases. She captures both the underlying traditionalism of his training and his audacious breakthrough in style, subject, and technique. This uniquely documented tribute to Renoir, with its lavish illustrations, including three gatefolds, is the essential Renoir. THE NEW YORK TIMES, Books of the Times, November 28, 1984, Christopher Lehmann-Haupt: "One of the two most impressive art books of the year . Barbara White's documentary life of Renoir serves to integrate the joyful oeuvre with the not always so happy times of the artist." TIME MAGAZINE: "A thorough and commendably lucid biography of the great French painter." BOSTON GLOBE, Art critic Robert Taylor: "RENOIR. . . is a remarkable task of scholarship accomplished by a Tufts scholar who has sifted through hundreds of letters and basic source materials concerning the artist. But it is also a highly readable account, which ought to change the way we look at Renoir.". Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0810996073
