A Weekend with Renoir
Rizzoli International Publications, Incorporated, 1996 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 64 pages
I have put on my little round hat (which I wear often, in fact), combed my white beard and put on my best navy-blue suit. I am wearing my favorite necktie, too. Surely, you can see at once that I am a painter. I am so pleased that you have come to spend the weekend with me, to hear me talk about myself and my friends-- they are painters also. What I am about to tell you is my own true story-- the story of my life and my work. You will have to step back with me into the past-- before you were born, yes, but not so very long ago.
Let me introduce myself to you. My name is Pierre-Auguste Renoir.
