Pierre-Auguste Renoir book of postcards


As Dr. Barnes explains in his book The Art in Painting, "[Renoir's] temperament made him love and observe attentively the commonplace people and incidents of life, so that in his hands they cease to be commonplace and are suffused with a poetic charm. His imaginative discernment makes them living people for him, and he delights in surrounding them with the wealth of sensuous quality, the voluptuousness that came from his own rich endowment."

This book of postcards contains thirty reproductions of paintings by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, all of them in the collection of the Barnes Foundation. Postcards are oversized and may require additional postage. Book measures 6.5" x 4.75".
