Renoir in the Barnes Foundation
by Martha Lucy and John House.

Renoir in the Barnes Foundation by Barnes Associate Curator Martha Lucy and the late John House, professor emeritus at the Courtauld Institute of Art, London, is a landmark- the first volume to publish all 181 works in Albert C. Barnes''s astonishing Renoir collection. Essays by Lucy and House tell the story of Barnes''s obsession with Renoir and get at the essence of the painter''s modernity, as well as his conflicted attitude toward the modern world. Sixty-four texts on key Renoirs in the collection set them in historical context. Seven short essays discuss the Barnes''s other 117 Renoirs by type. Technical notes by the Foundation''s conservators explain how Renoir painted. This is a lively and beautiful book that you will want for your library.
