Product Description

Bonnard Pierre Bonnard is among the great artists whose work marked the twentieth century. This book shows how Bonnard's contribution to a 'modern' conception of painting makes him a decisive figure in twentieth-century art. It looks at some of the recurrent themes in the artist's work, and reveals a re-invention of his vision.

HASH(0x905bc168) out of 5 stars Wonderful color reproductions 27 Mar. 2008
By wild child's mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book makes me want to see a Bonnard "in person"! The publishers did a fabulous job of depicting the dreamy and lush colors of Bonnards paintings. Faintest shades, brush strokes, lines, tiny details -- it's all visible, and everything contributes to the liveliness of the reproductions. It is certainly hard to capture the emotions that a painting exudes in an art book, and I have not often come across such quality prints.

HASH(0x91813ee8) out of 5 stars Excellent 16 Nov. 2008
By E. Gilbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
For me, and I am not an expert, Pierre Bonnard was the 20th century's greatest artist, not Picasso because Picasso had no tenderness in his painting. This book is a beautiful collection of Bonnard's work, the color plates are superb and the accompanying text is excellent. I highly recommend it.

HASH(0x909e2810) out of 5 stars Ah, Bonnard! 4 Dec. 2013
By Kya - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have waited over a year to buy this book. It is still overpriced in my view. Bonnard's art work is not full- page displayed and some of the bio provided is in conflict with what I have read elsewhere; "Bonnard", Sarah Whitfield/John Elderfield, 1998, Harry N Abrahms, Inc., Publishers (very nice displays of full page art work as well as smaller pieces).
But, it was worth buying all the same. Interesting, a re-evaluation of Bonnard's work in a post-modernist context which has been in progress for a number of years now. Lots of art babel. I want more art work displays!!!!
