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