Renoir: Between Bohemia and Bourgeoisie

"Alongside Monet, Bazille and Sisley, Pierre-Auguste Renoir laid the foundations of Impressionism in 1860s Paris. But acclaim for his painting was slow in coming, primarily because of the tribulations of the Franco-Prussian War and the Paris Commune, which put a hiatus on so much artistic activity during the 1860s–70s. As a result, the first two decades of Renoir’s career are sometimes ignored, an oversight this superb volume decisively remedies."
