This is a celebration of Renoir's last fruitful years at Les Colettes on the Cote d'Azur. With its rich blend of photographs of the house and garden today and nostalgic photographs of Renoir at his easel, as well as reproductions of some of his paintings, Renoir's Garden is a unique record of the 'paradise on earth' which inspired the Impressionist painter to complete more than 600 works of art. With an affectionate foreword by the painter's great-grandson Jacques Renoir, this book is a superb evocation of a much-loved and hither-to little-known garden, now preserved as a living museum to the artist.
