Pierre Bonnard, French painter

Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947) was a French painter, a “post-impressionist”, a member of the Nabis ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Les_Nabis ), etc… You’ll find many labels around him.

If you Google image (or Pinterest) his name, you’ll find :

  1. A splendid and risky use of colors
  2. Unusual viewpoints
  3. Original “frames” games (windows, doors…)
  4. A obvious smiling casualness, and modest dareness, nerve
  5. A Japanese way to draw in 2D, flat
  6. Intimate scenes and everyday life
  7. Dreamy, quietness
  8. Unfinishness, childishness, chilled : pleasure


So maybe like me you won’t like Bonnard, but you’ll like him though! Watch them in a row, and you’ll find a smile on your face. See?

Have a nice day!
