Renoir Reconstructed

Renoir Reconstructed

In Renoir Reconstructed, the artist and poet Paul takes eight works by Pierre-Auguste Renoir (Near the Lake, Girls at the Piano, The Theatre Box, Luncheon of the Boating Party, The Bathers, The Bohemian, Two Sisters, and Woman with a Parasol in a Garden) and abstracts them through pixelation to reveal average color distributions over given areas of the image, from the entirety of the painting as one solid color to a “full resolution” image of the painting. Through these eleven stages of resolution, attention is called to the question of “what constitutes adequate reproduction?”

In its manifold aspects, Renoir Reconstructed can be viewed variously as a color study, as an examination of graphic reproduction, and as a work of visual poetry.

Renoir Reconstructed is part of the Reconstructed series of art books (Bosch, Da Vinci, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Monet, Cézanne, Van Gogh, and Rousseau).
