Historical Context:
After failing the civil service exam, and spending six-months in the military, Bonnard rented his first studio with his father's consent. Everyday Parisian street scenes supplied him with the motifs of his paintings, with an eye for the small details. Bonnard exhibited paintings at the Salon des Indépendants in 1891. In the autumn of the 1891 he took part in the first exhibition of the Nabis in the Gallery of Le Barc de Boutteville.
