Overview


This title is one in a series presenting four masterpieces by four immortal French impressionist painters. Each miniature book faithfully reproduces its title painting on the front cover, and is packaged in a handsome slipcase that doubles as a picture frame. The frame can stand up on a desk or tabletop or be hung on the wall to display the book cover’s striking painting. Each book’s interior discusses its title painting, describing the artist’s approach to his work, analyzing the picture’s fine points, and showing close-up details from the painting. A final two-page spread presents a timeline capsule biography that lists significant events in the painter’s life. Renoir—Dance at Bougival shows and discusses Piere-Auguste Renoir’s festive painting, which places many of his personal friends in the picture’s foreground. Painted in 1876, it now hangs in the Mus©e d’Orsay in Paris.
