Pierre Bonnard's art is the expression of his unbridled delight in ordinary, daily life. The world his work evokes is one of cozy rooms suffused with light, of tender family presences, of nudes stepping in and out of the bath, of amiable and adored cats and floppy Parisian dogs. His interiors have an inviting glow--tables are always laden with fruit, doors and windows are open, and lush and heady landscapes spill forth. Bonnard painted a land of bounty and sensuous enchantment. Born in 1867 to a well-to-do family near Paris, Bonnard was very much part of the cultured bourgeoisie--wry, urbane, and fond of domestic comforts. Initially associated with the group of painters known as the Nabis, who were interested in oriental motifs, mysticism, and the art of Paul Gauguin, Bonnard became influenced by Japanese prints. Like the Japanese artists whose work he admired, Bonnard tended to emphasize line and color over modeling and depth, and to abolish any hierarchy among his subjects. In his paintings, a kitchen pot is as likely to be the focus of attention as is a person, and often his most successful works revolve around a simple ornamental detail: the patterns in a dress or the stripes on a blouse, the scattered flowers on a wallpaper, or the checks of a tablecloth. It is precisely this ability to infuse even the most commonplace object with such vivid personality that sets Bonnard apart--that and his work's inimitable charm and playfulness.--

Le Horla by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

35 editions published between 1986 and 2016 in French and Undetermined and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le Horla raconte la lente désagrégation d'un esprit, de la dépression à la folie - des maux que connaissait bien Maupassant. Le héros se sent peu à peu envahi par un autre, qui agit à travers lui : le Horla, puissance invisible, inconsciente, qui le manipule. S'installent alors l'incompréhension, la peur, l'angoisse. Jusqu'à l'irréparable. Prenant la forme du journal intime, la nouvelle illustre ce que Freud nommera l'inquiétante étrangeté, cette intrusion progressive du malaise dans le quotidien. Modèle de nouvelle fantastique, Le Horla est aussi une description clinique du dédoublement de personnalité qui menace toute conscience
