Renoir: The Body, The Senses
Best known as part of the influential vanguard of Impressionist artists in the 19th-century, Renoir was inspired by classical traditions and returned again and again to the canonical subject of the nude.
Renoir: The Body, The Senses traces the entire arc of the artist’s career, examining the different approaches he employed in his various depictions of the subject. Featuring beautiful illustrations of approximately fifty paintings, pastels, drawings and sculptures, it analyses his works that respond to Courbet, Manet, Degas and Cezanne, and his controversial depictions of bathers.
In this illuminating study, eminent scholars look at the ways Renoir used the nude as a means of personal expression, but also analyse his art through the lens of a modern feminist critique of the male gaze. The book also features an interview with the contemporary figurative painter Lisa Yuskavage that considers his continuing influence and the historical significance of the female nude in art.
