The first collection of the photographs of master Impressionist painter Pierre Bonnard, this work of scholarship documents the existing oeuvre of Bonnard's work, from delicate nature studies and landscapes in his native France and elsewhere in Euriope, to striking portraiture and intimate images of lovers, friends and family. The more than 276 photographs and illustrations, demonstrate the range and genius of Bonnard's work, and offer insights into his process as an artist. Bonnard's photographs wre the inspiration for several of his well-known works, among them the illustrations fro Parallèlemnt by Verlaine (1900) and Daphnis and Chloé by Longus (1902). The texts and critical annotations make important connections between Bonnard's photographs and his drawings and paintings

Pierre Bonnard : early and late by Elizabeth Hutton Turner( Book )

14 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This major presentation of the work of Pierre Bonnard follows a new line of enquiry reconciling what has previously been seen as two distinct early and creative periods: the Nabis or symbolist Bonnard and the later so-called Impressionist or colorist Bonnard. By uniting representative works from all periods of Bonnard's life, this book charts the artist's singular pathway and illustrates his highly independent artistic vision. The 130 works illustrated here, including paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, and sculpture, show that Bonnard continually experimented with alternative media and drew from a range of sources, both Eastern and Western."--Page 4 of cover

37 editions published between 1896 and 1994 in 4 languages and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Une dinde qui se pavane royalement dans sa cour, un cygne qui glisse sur son bassin comme un traîneau blanc, un âne fonctionnaire qui transporte le courrier, un goujon qui ne mord qu'à demi l'hameçon...¦Tels sont nos animaux familiers dans leur vie de tous les jours. Jules Renard, ce chasseur d'images, les a longuement observés et en a brossé le portrait tendre et incisif. Le paon, le chat, le cheval n'ont jamais eu autant de panache ou de drôlerie que sous sa plume alerte et ingénieuse
Interpreting Bonnard : color and light by Nicholas Watkins( Book )

5 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pierre Bonnard was a very private painter who confined his subject matter to his wife, his homes, the surrounding countryside, and his self-portraits." "This book provides a concise review of Bonnard's life, key works, and the development of his technique, which began with early work done chiefly in tone, then led to gradual color-enrichment and, finally, to the mastery of light suffusion. Author Nicholas Watkins presents the artist not as a sentimental survivor of Impressionism, as he was often labeled, but as a highly demanding formal artist who transformed light into an emotional atmosphere enveloping the surface within which objects exist."--Jacket

Bonnard and the Nabis by A. G Kostenevich( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pierre Bonnard was the leader of a group of post-impressionist painters who called themselves the Nabis, from the Hebrew word meaning 'prophet'. Bonnard, Vuillard, Roussel and Denis, the most distinguished of the Nabis, revolutionized the spirit of decorative techniques during one of the richest periods in the history of French painting. Influenced by Odilon Redon and Puvis de Chavanne, by popular imagery and Japanese etchings, this post-impressionist group was above all a close circle of friends who shared the same cultural background and interests.

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947) is among the great artists whose work undoubtedly marked the twentieth century. This book, which accompanies a major retrospective of the artist's work at the Musee d'art modern de la Ville de Paris, shows how Bonnard's contribution to a 'modern' conception of painting makes him a decisive figure in the history of twentieth-century art." "Including essays by a cast of distinguished writers, new interviews with those who knew Bonnard or whose work has been influenced by him, unpublished archival photographs and diary, drawings, and full-color reproductions of 100 paintings, this book provides a major reassessment of the artist's contribution to the history of modernism, as well as a record of his life and work."--BOOK JACKET
