Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The last two years have seen an unusually large number of Renoir exhibitions, and their attendant catalogues, which have focussed mostly on the middle and, even more so, the late works. The blockbuster of them all was the huge 2010 "Renoir in the Twentieth Century, " in Paris, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia, with its 440-page catalogue. Also in 2010, The Clark Art Institute mounted "The Genius of Renoir: Paintings from The Clark" in Williamstown and Madrid, presenting paintings mostly from the 1870's and 1880's, reflecting its own collection, the earliest Renoir in which is from 1874. Then came the 2012 opening of the Barnes Foundation's new museum, also in Philadelphia, and to celebrate they published the monumental catalogue raisonne of their 181 Renoir paintings, 85% of which were also created after 1900, the year when Renoir turned 59. And also this year was the Frick Collection's "Renoir: Impressionism and Full-Length Painting," centered around their "La Promenade" from 1875-76 and featuring work mostly from the late 1870's and the following decade. (See the various reviews of those catalogues on this website.)

In the face of all that concentrated attention, one could almost forget that there was also an early Renoir. And so it was good that this summer's exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Basel was "Renoir Between Bohemia and Bourgeoisie: The Early Years," and that Hatje Canz has published this very fine English version of the original German catalogue (even though the exhibition didn't leave Basel). There are fifty excellently printed full-page reproductions of paintings from 1864 to 1880, many of which are not frequently encountered in other Renoir books.

Beautifully conceived book with great plates in the catalog. The translation of the text, though, is at times a little difficult to read.
