The great French Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) loved women, and it was by his images of women that he wished to be judged as an artist. The nature of Renoir's enduring interest in women is explored here through his depictions of maternity, children, women in domestic settings, the Parisian demoiselle and nudes, as well as through his works influenced by Orientalism and his society portraits. As this splendidly illustrated book demonstrates, women were Renoir's most potent source of inspiration, and his feeling for their femininity resulted in some of the most perceptive and intimate portrayals of women ever painted.
