Henri Martin: Amoureux au printemps

“In 1900, Martin acquired property in Labastide-du-Vert, a small village in France’s Midi-Pyrenées region.

The artist wrote of this period as a turning point in…

Pierre Bonnard: Palmier rose au Cannet (1924)

“…Watkins has described the process by which Bonnard mediated and transposed these observations of the landscape back in his studio: “Paintings begun in the memory of a visual experience encapsulated in a drawing were transformed through color into a rich, immensely varied surface made up of a tapestry of brushstrokes, glazes, scumbles, impasto, and highlights…

Pierre Bonnard: Flowers in a Stoneware Pot (c1939)

“This rustic, variegated bouquet may have been placed either in the spacious dining room on the ground floor at Le Bosquet or in the intimate sitting area upstairs where Bonnard and Marthe took their breakfast and lunch each day.

A Visit to Bonnard’s Garden

“At the turn of the century, Bonnard rediscovered nature and colour, after the muted tones and the urban scenes of his Nabi years. He stayed more and more often outside Paris, in the Seine Valley and in the South of France. Impressionism inspired him, but he wanted to go beyond its direct translation of nature….

Pierre Bonnard: Deux corbeilles de fruits (1935)

The present work reveals Bonnard’s ability to synthesize an array of artistic influences, both contemporary and historic.
