The painting 'The Luncheon of the Boating Party' by Renoir is my third favorite painting. I admire this book for its attention to detail in learning how Renoir chose his subjects (for the painting); for their character and history. The facts put forth in the book give new meaning to the painting and allow one to feel personally connected.
I'll finish this review when I have finished the book. Let it be known that reading this book gives me great pleasure and knowledge.
