Renoir jellemzők

This book of postcards offers a rich sampling of the paintings of Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Renoir's mastery of color and extraordinary facility in the use of paint were his strengths; his work compares in these respects with that of any of his great predecessors. He believed that his paintings should be likeable, joyous, and pretty: his paintings of figures, interiors, and landscapes show an engaging strength, delicacy, and charm. Thirty outstanding reproductions of Renoir's paintings, all from the collection of The Barnes Foundation in Merion, Pennsylvania, make up this delightful book of postcards. 30 full-color reproductions.
