Descripción

"This vivid and affectionate memoir.is one of the best written and most enjoyable books ever devoted to a painter. It abounds in brilliant vignettes ofr Renoir's family and friends, his models and work habits, and is saturated with the opinions and prejudices of the painter himself.The author's emotions guide rather than obtrude upon the lucidity of his style; it is Renoir the painter who is constantly in the foreground.the account of Renoir's work habits and personal loyalties has much to tell us about the relation of his art.to physical sensation and sensuous experience. As a source book on the painter and his period it effectively replaces Vollard's memoir of Renoir." {The Nation Magazine}. This book 416 pages and is illustrated. The book is a SIGNED copy from the author, Jean Renoir and Marie-Poule Renoir. Overall, this is a FINE copy of this SCARCE title. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. N° de ref. de la librería 064786

Sinopsis:

In this delightful memoir, Jean Renoir, the director of such masterpieces of the cinema as Grand Illusion and The Rules of the Game, tells the life story of his father, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, the great Impressionist painter. Recounting Pierre-Auguste's extraordinary career, beginning as a painter of fans and porcelain, recording the rules of thumb by which he worked, and capturing his unpretentious and wonderfully engaging talk and personality, Jean Renoir's book is both a wonderful double portrait of father and son and, in the words of the distinguished art historian John Golding, it "remains the best account of Renoir, and, furthermore, among the most beautiful and moving biographies we have."

Includes 12 pages of color plates and 18 pages of black and white images.

About the Author:

JEAN RENOIR (1894–1979), the son of the painter Auguste Renoir, was born in Paris, grew up in the south of France, and served as a cavalryman and pilot during World War I. He directed his first film, La Fille de l’eau, in 1925 and followed it with many others, including his masterpieces Grand Illusion (1937) and The Rules of the Game (1939). In 1975 Jean Renoir received an Academy Award for his lifetime contribution to the cinema.
