Pierre Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) first achieved fame as a member of the Impressionist school, along with his good friend Claude Monet. A lifelong resident of France, Renoir continued to paint into old age, even after rheumatism confined him to a wheelchair.
Renoir for Kids contains ten reproductions of his favorite paintings, including Young Girls at the Piano and Girl with a Hoop, in a toddler-friendly board-book format.
About the editor
Margaret E. Hyde was inspired to create the Great Art for Kids books when she could not find age-appropriate art books for her own little girl. As an alternative to having her expensive coffee-table books drooled on, Mrs. Hyde designed these durable board books to introduce young children to the great painters. A native of Memphis, Mrs. Hyde now lives in Santa Monica with her family.
Other titles in the Great Art for Kids Series are Cassatt for Kids, Impressionists for Kids, Matisse for Kids, Picasso for Kids, and Van Gogh for Kids ($8.95 each), all available from Pelican.
