renoir in Guernsey

“What a pretty little place! What pretty paths! Superb rocks, beaches such as Robinson must have had on his island, as well as rump steak and ale at manageable prices – up to now, everything is fine. All I have to do is to take advantage of the admirable weather and bring you back some nice things so that you can forgive my infidelity to beautiful Normandy.”

Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) has a special significance for Guernsey as the famous Impressionist spent just over a month on the island in 1883 and worked on 15 paintings during his stay, all depicting views of Moulin Huet.
