The Genius of Renoir: Paintings from the Clark
by John House (Author), James A. Ganz (Contributor)
With a consuming enthusiasm for the paintings of Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919), art collector Sterling Clark assembled one of the greatest private collections of Renoir's work during the first half of the 20th century. Today the masterpieces he so admired form a vital part of the Impressionist holdings of the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute. The Genius of Renoir: Paintings from the Clark offers a fascinating, fresh look at the thirty-two Renoir paintings in the Clark collection, featuring beautiful digital color reproductions created especially for this volume.
