    Pierre August Renoir was struggling financially in 1880, reduced to painting portraits of upper class women but wanting to work on a satisfying project He decided to paint Luncheon of the Boating Party , a large painting worthy of being hung in the prestigious Salon Renoir gathered up his friends and acquaintances to pose on a series of Sunday afternoons on the terrace of a restaurant along the Seine Renoir wanted to depict people enjoying life in a beautiful location He felt committed to Impressionism, but did not want to follow some of the newer Impressionists who were depicting the miserable, seedier side of life.French society was in transition ten years after the Franco Prussian War with time for leisure, and modern ways of expression Some war veterans and a war widow were among the models for Renoir s masterpiece The descriptions of painting were very sensual with Renoir declaring, I only want to paint women I love, or imagine I could love Several of the models had a romantic interest in the artist, including the woman who would eventually become his wife.A cross section of soci...

    Delle perfette letture nel mezzo del cammin della sessione esami.Nonostante abbia una Lista Desideri Librosi LDL lunga da Marsiglia ad Istanbul, pu capitare che in libreria mi lasci andare ad uno stupido giochetto infantile, imbarazzante da mettere in pratica e, soprattutto, pericoloso per la mia salute letteraria una sorta di gioco della bottiglia nobilitato Soltanto che poi non mi tocca baciare il commesso questo non significa che non mi piacerebbe preciso, caso mai stesse leggendo Apri gli occhi, Aldebrando ma scegliere un libro.Porto le mie membra al centro del negozio.Chiudo gli occhi.Giro su me stessa, contando fino a sette conta e movimento a velocit variabile, diciamo dieci biscotti segnalibro.E stop.Il primo libro che acchiappo con lo sguardo, appena riapro gli occhi, il prescelto.Non do di matto A CASO Lo faccio soltanto quando il periodo esistenziale del momento leggi sessione esami universitari , voglio morire, uccidetemi con fare maldestro mi consente di digerire solo letture ad alto tasso di digeribilit.E poich non sono in grado di valutare da sola i potenziali titoli che fanno a caso mio e non mi fido degli altri semplicemente perch la digeribilit un con...

    I love historical fiction and I was really intrigued when I found this book Unfortunately, I was disappointed The premise of a book set in bohemian Paris which delves into the lives and conversations of Renoir and the models for his famous painting was irresistable While Vreeland s research is impressive and provides a lot of detail, it is done in a slow and awkward way The book provided insight into Renoir s thought process and what it was like to be an impressionist painter I also found her depiction of other artists of the time and the rivalry interaction to be interesting The painting has always seemed so alive to me with a great story to tell The book just never reaches the point of great storytelling Some parts are interesting, but it was actually a struggle to finish To me, there is too much insignificant background and detail wi...

    This book is excellent What exactly does that mean I guess that puts it between very good and amazing Why is it short of amazing It is hard to feel an emotional connection to a group of about twenty characters First you have to get to know all of them The further you read into the story the attached the reader feels for the numerous characters There is not one character that is bland Each has an interesting story to tell Still there are just too many, and this being a book of historical fiction the author had to stick to the facts I am glad she stuck to the facts There is an author s note at the end that carefully points out what is unknown and where Vreeland has filled in with her own imagination, but based on thorough research Half way through I checked out internet I just could not wait to the end to know all The title of this book and its theme is one painting by Auguste Renoir Le D jeuner des Canotiers or in English The Luncheon of the Boating Party The French link at Wiki is in fact better than the English, so I have included both French am not going to repeat the details about this marvelous painting, today part of the Phillips Collection in Washington D.C It was painted in 1880 18...

    Questo libro, che narra la nascita di uno dei capolavori di Renoir, La colazione dei canottieri stato capace di emozionarmi e di trasportarmi nella Francia del diciannovesimo secolo.A volte mi capitato, osservando un quadro osservazioni da assoluta profana perch non sono un esperta d arte , di chiedermi Chiss come venuta l idea al pittore oppure Come mai avr scelto di ritrarre proprio queste persone ecco in questo libro non solo ci sono le risposte a domande come queste ma c molto di pi A un certo punto mi sembrato quasi di entrare nella testa di Renoir che dipingeva sulla terrazza della Maison Fournaise , quelle pennellate cos abilmente descritte mi pareva di vederle coi miei occhi, ho avuto la sensazione che il quadro venisse nuovamente creato fra le mie mani, pagina dopo pagina.I personaggi ritratti nel dipinto poi sono cos ben caratterizzati, mi sono diventati cos familiari che ora, a lettura finita, mi ritrovo a osservare un immagine presa da internet de La colazione dei canottieri scoprendom...

    I really wanted to like this book BUT it was over written, much too long, too much flowery description trying to convey the thoughts and feelings of an artist came across to me as melodramatic and artificial.I am an artist I am a coloristbut enough already describing the mixing of every color.I finished the book and endured some of the unnecessary subplot...

    Mi e capitato molte volte, guardando un dipinto, di lasciar scorrere l immaginazione e fantasticare su chi fossero le persone rappresentate, quale fosse la loro vita giocando con la fantasia e divertendomi a inventare storie nella mia mente Susan Vreeland mi serve su un piatto d argento un libro di 500 pagine in cui posso chiudere gli occhi e ritrovarmi in un attimo nella Parigi di fine 800, mi accompagna in questo giochino che mi diverte tanto ad assistere alla creazione di uno dei capolavori dell impressionismo, movimento artistico che io adoro con il suo stile fluido mi ha dato la possibilit di seguire Renoir ogni Domenica correre verso la locanda Fornaise, mi ha fatto entrare nella vita di ogni singolo personaggio dipinto su quella terrazza, ho vissuto la lotta interiore del pittore seguire gli schemi dell Accademia o ascoltare l istinto e dipingere ci che gli veniva da dentro e lo faceva sentire vivo, l eterno dilemma restare fermi nell angoletto sicuro aspettando che accada quacosa o scegliere, osare, rischiare Renoir ...
