Renoir My Father (Tr)

Author: Jean Renoir   Series: NYRB Classics S.

Paperback

In this delightful memoir, Jean Renoir, director of cinematic masterpieces such as 'Grand Illusion' and 'Rules of the Game', tells the life-story of his father, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, the great impressionist painter.

In this delightful memoir, Jean Renoir, the director of such masterpieces of the cinema as "Grand Illusion" and "The Rules of the Game," tells the life story of his father, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, the great Impressionist painter. Recounting Pierre-Auguste's extraordinary career, beginning as a painter of fans and porcelain, recording the rules of thumb by which he worked, and capturing his unpretentious and wonderfully engaging talk and personality, Jean Renoir's book is both a wonderful double portrait of father and son and, in the words of the distinguished art historian John Golding, it " remains the best account of Renoir, and, furthermore, among the most beautiful and moving biographies we have." Includes 12 pages of color plates and 18 pages of black and white images.
