    RENOIR FAMILY REFERENCE LIBRARY

    THE RENOIR COLLECTION

    The Renoir family reference library is a collection of books relating primarily to art and art reference that date from the mid-1800s throughout the 20th century. Also in the collection, but not itemized in the following list is a large number of catalogues and magazines from museums, galleries and other institutions such as Bernheim-Jeune & Cie, Galeries Durand-Ruel, Galerie Georges Petit, Hôtel Drouot, Musée du Louvre, Musée de Lyon, Musée de l'Orangerie, Musée d'Orsay, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Christie's, Sotheby's, Tableaux Modernes, Vente aux Enchères, and Wildenstein, among many others, as well as approximately 190 general books from the Les Collettes library dating from the late 19th/early 20th centuries, some of which bear Les Collettes bookplates. Most of the literature mentioned below was likely part of Pierre-Auguste Renoir's personal library, however the extent of the library's content is too massive to confirm exactly how many and which books belonged to each family member.
