Notes

Summary:
This painting is an excellent example of Bonnard's technique of using the horizontals and verticals of walls, doors and windows to structure a composition. Despite its strong organisation around a central vertical axis, this is a classic instance of an overlapping series of planes being used to establish depth so that, looking from the bottom to the top, the canvas is transformed into looking in and then out. Right at the rear a kind of visual puzzle awaits us. The paint of the two areas of very pale blue in the middle section of the open doors appears to run down below the lower edges. The white section to the left can be seen as attached to the window, or standing at an angle just outside, or perhaps flat on a wall at some distance.
