Gift options available at checkout

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.  Specifications:
