HATJE CANTZ

Renoir in the 20th Century

Text by Roger Benjamin, Claudia Einecke.

Here at last is a publication devoted to the glorious final three decades of Pierre-Auguste Renoir—the decades in which the painter turned away from Impressionism and toward a more decorative approach informed by his own idiosyncratic interpretation of art history. During this period, Renoir was initially looking at painters such as Rubens, Titian and Raphael, and dedicating himself to cheery subjects such as bathers, domestic idylls and landscapes that were influenced by both classical mythology and by his relocation to the South of France. The thinly brushed color and blurry outlines in later works such as the “Odalisques” and the “Bathers” of 1918–1919 (a picture that Renoir described as “a springboard for future research”), were much admired by an up-and-coming generation of avant-garde artists, who gravitated to their sensuality and to the fleshy richness of his nudes—qualities which have made his art so hugely popular and so widely reproduced. In the wealth of color illustrations in this book—which accompanies a major touring exhibition organized by the Réunion des Musées Nationaux, the Musée d'Orsay and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in collaboration with the Philadelphia Museum of Art—it is possible to see clearly the influence that Renoir had on younger artists such as Bonnard, Matisse and Picasso, as well as how they received and studied his work.Along with Monet and Sisley, Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841–1919) was a founder of the style that became known as Impressionism, and one of its most prolific members. Surviving most of his contemporaries, he lived to see his paintings hung at the Louvre alongside the old masters he so revered.
