Essays by Colin B. Bailey, Linda Nochlin, and Anne Distel. Throughout five decades of communicating through his painting, Renoir constantly pursued an independent vision. He was never afraid to be innovative or to break ranks with the art world's status quo. This sumptuously illustrated book is the first devoted exclusively to Renoir`s portraiture, and in it are gathered the finest examples of the portraits he painted during each period of his prolific career. In these delightful paintings Renoir creates uniquely endearing and enduring images of pleasure, comfort, and prosperity. A beautiful production. Portraits form the exhibiton from the National Gallery of Canada exhibit, 27 June - 14 September 1997. . Cover shows light shelf-wear, some pages are lightly faded around edges. Text is clean and unmarked, binding is tight. FINE.. B&W and Color Illustrations. 4to 11" - 13" tall. xiii, 384 pp
