Renoir And Algeria

£17.99

Product description

Handsomely illustrated, the book situates Renoir's early studio Orientalism of the 1870s within the great tradition of French Orientalist painting. The artist's small group of odalisques and costumed portraits constitutes some of the most sumptuous works of the genre. The book also discusses the landscapes and figure paintings Renoir completed in Algiers, several of which are previously unpublished, placing them in the context of the city and the ethnography of its people.

Hardback book in very good condition, with dust jacket.
