Renoir in the Barnes Foundation

Albert C. Barnes called Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) a god and collected 181 works by him. Renoir in the Barnes Foundation publishes the complete Renoir holdings of the Foundation, tells the story of Barnes's obsession with the painter, and pins down the modernity of an artist whose attitude to the modern world was extremely conflicted.
