During the 78 years of his life Pierre-Auguste Renoir made thousands of paintings and uncounted drawings, watercolors, and sketches. Behind this prodigious output is a lifetime of struggle and anguish seldom hinted at in his joyful work, including Renoir's battle with crippling arthritis. In Barbara Ehrlich White's superb illustrated biography-the result of more than 20 years of research, originally published to great acclaim in 1984-Renoir's efforts to find a new art to match his vision of the world created by light and warmth are vividly chronicled through his letters and those of his friends and patrons. The book is filled with black and white photos and color reproductions up to 17 x 12 inches, including four gatefolds.
