Product Description

Review

'Ideal introductions for students and museum-goers.' The Independent

From the Back Cover

Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947) is acknowledged as one of the great masters of modern art, following in the tradition of the Impressionists. He is best known as a painter of intimate, domestic interiors but he was also a highly accomplished draughtsman who produced a wealth of lithographs and drawings. The book illustrates the full range of his output from his early works inspired by Japanese prints to the rich and dazzling works of his later years which have ensured his reputation as one of the twentieth century's great colourists. With its lavish illustrations this book provides an excellent introduction to a brilliant artist.

These are well produced basic guides and the colour plates, which are large, seem true to colour. They are a good overview for anyone starting out, or as a basic reference on the style of each artist. Extensive series, too.

An excellent book with high quality photographs. A readable biography followed by helpful reviews of each of the paintings. Good value for money. I'm glad I bought it.

By Mr. G. Morgan TOP 500 REVIEWER on 16 Aug. 2015
I knew a little of Bonnard when beginning this book and I feel on more solid ground now concerning this underrated master. He is a welcome contrast to the hackneyed idea of the artist-as-madman, as a tortured soul each worse than useless. He was clearly a lovely man too, a bonus, and the devotion to his wife Marthe, so often his subject, informs the colours he lavishes on her representations: interesting that she hardly (I nearly wrote 'barely', a Freudian slip) appears to change in his eyes over the decades, less that his eye was deficient than he remained in love and she was a Platonic ideal, his 'other half.' His supreme skill as a colourist is evident in the fine reproductions here, showing the broad washes of subtle gradations as well as the equally fine use of contrast. One expects this of Bell, a fine and judicious a writer/critic as there is, who has assembled a selection that will appeal to anyone who appreciates beauty and values artistry by one of great painterly and personal integrity.
