Bonnard. The colours of light - Exhibition catalogue


An exhibition highlighting colour and light in the painter's work. As he did not seek to reproduce reality but to translate the fleeting elements that pass through it, Bonnard did not paint directly on the spot but from memory in his studio, basing himself on notes and sketches.

The artist

Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947)

A major post-impressionist painter of 20th century art, he was at first one of the painters of the Nabis group with whom he remained in friendship throughout his life. However, he developed an independent and unclassifiable work, offering the appearance of simplicity although of a rare complexity, without taking into account the major movements of his time such as cubism or surrealism.
