Bonnard, Pierre, 1867-1947.
e Artist : painter
Nude Woman with Pink Dress (detail).
b 56 x 63 cm
c Oil on canvas.
Bonnard is indeed a visually complex artist, whose constant experimenting with peculiar compositional schemes--especially his habit of concealing figures on the margins of his paintings--requires patient and prolonged viewing. Picasso's paintings grab you by the throat; Bonnard's paintings dawn on you. They are "adventures of the optic nerve," as Bonnard calls them.
Style: French Nabi.
Movement: Les Nabis : Parisian Post-Impressionism.
