Auguste Renoir, Catalogue Raisonné de l'Oeuvre Peint, Figures 1860-1890
Lausanne: Editions Durand-Ruel, 1971. Lausanne: Editions Durand-Ruel, 1971. First Edition. Hardback. Very Good/Very good. 2657 Folio. The first in what was to have been a set of five volumes of the catalogue raisonné of Renoir's work. This first volume, however, was the only one to appear of this particular project. It includes a preface by Charles Durand-Ruel, an introductory chapter on Renoir as a figure painter, an account of his life (pages 31 to 60 plus bibliography to page 74; illustrated in colour reproductions, typically quarter page, of some of the paintings). The catalogue itself is organised with four monochrome reproduction to one page and the four catalogue entries facing that page. There is an index with biographical notes of the models known to have sat for Renoir, and lastly an index of owners of the works. This copy is number 1160 of the limited print run of 1850 copies. Condition notes: Some sunning to the dust jacket (unclipped), which also has slight signs of wear. Book itself is firm, clean and bright, with perhaps a little age tanning to the preliminary pages. There is some just-discernible wear to the spine strip. Overall a very good copy in a very good dust jacket. (If you are looking at this listing on a site that shows photographs, please be assured- the wide angled lens used has caused distortion of the image shape, and the book is a regular-issue rectangular one!).
