Historical Context:
Pierre Bonnard was a French painter and printmaker who was a founding member of Les Nabis, a group of young artists committed to creating work of symbolic and spiritual nature. He is known for his intense use of color, especially in areas of small brush marks and close values. His complex compositions, typically of sunlit interiors of rooms and gardens populated with friends and family members, are both narrative and autobiographical.
