Still Under Construction ...

... but I have been adding to the Bio, Editions, B&W Prints and Cards pages.   

RENOIR'S VENUS VICTORIOUS   2003 oil 18" x 24"  $2650. framed

Around 1892, Renoir developed rheumatoid arthritis.  In 1907, he left Paris for the warmer climate of the French Riviera. There with the help of a young artist, Richard Guino, who worked the clay, he created sculptures such as this one in his garden. As an art student Renoir was my favourite French Impressionist painter. I'm sure you can imagine my delight when I had the good fortune to visit his home, a farm called Les Collettes, at Cagnes-sur-Mer.
