    [Pierre Renoir]. Decorating Expense Ledger for the Cagnes-Sur-Mer Home of Pierre-Auguste Renoir, circa 1907.

    This seventeen page expense ledger written in French measures 7.75" x 11.5" and specifies dimensions and cost for work done on specified rooms and items by "Charruet & Fils /Painters and Decorators / executed for the account of Monsieur Renoir a Paris." Noted rooms include the kitchen, office, grand staircase, the bedroom of Mrs. Renoir, the "rose" room, the "green" room, bathrooms, dining room and "the bedroom of Mr. Pierre." This ledger most likely describes the improvements made on Renoir's newly purchased home, Les Collettes, located in the small village of Cagnes-sur-mer in the South of France where Renoir and his wife moved in 1907 in the hopes that the fresh sea air would help improve his failing health. He lived and painted there until his death in 1919. Some toning due to age, and slight wear to edges.
