Renoir and Algeria by Roger Benjamin

Book Description

The volume situates Renoir's early studio Orientalism within the great tradition of French Orientalist painting. The landscapes and figure paintings Renoir completed in Algiers, several of which are previously unpublished, are discussed in the context of the topography of the city and of the ethnography of its people. Period photographs, engravings, maps and postcards, together with an essay exploring the Algeria beyond Renoir's canvases, provide historical and cultural background on the country and on the French presence there.

Books By Author Roger Benjamin

Kandinsky and Klee in Tunisia by Roger Benjamin Kandinsky and Klee in Tunisia, Hardback (September 2015)

Offers an understanding of how the European avant-garde was formed in dialogue with cultural difference. This book looks closely at the cities of Tunis, Sousse, Hammamet, and Kairouan to flesh out a profound confrontation between European high modernism and the wealth of Islamic lifeways and architecture.

Juan Davilla by Roger Benjamin Juan Davilla, Hardback (September 2006)

Juan Davila is a painter who believes in using art to facilitate social change. Davila was born in Santiago, Chile, and moved to Australia in the 1970s to escape the violent totalitarian regime of Pinochet. His work addresses international issues, especially with reference to Latin American and Australian themes.
