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. An increasing individualism in their art of

Collecting Matisse by A. G Kostenevich( Book )

7 editions published in 1993 in English and French and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The wealthy Moscow merchants Sergei Shchukin and Ivan Morozov were responsible for bringing a remarkable group of impressionist and postimpressionist French paintings to Russia, among them an exemplary collection of the works of Henri Matisse. Relying on his sensibility and self-confidence, Shchukin confronted a Russian society that ridiculed his eccentricities, and from 1908 to 1914 he assembled an exceptional collection of Matisse's works - thirty-seven paintings - with which he decorated his house in Moscow. Morozov was equally appreciative of the painter and, although a more modest collector, acquired eleven canvases. Between them, these two men made Russia the first foreign country to import Matisse's works. Collecting Matisse provides a fresh interpretation of a crucial period in the artist's career - the early years of Fauvism, when he decisively turned toward color as the essential element of painting - and one that radically marked the development of modern art as a whole. Matisse's work was known in Russia as early as 1904, and Shchukin's commission for the great decorative panels La Danse and La Musique revolutionized the Moscow art world. A penetrating text and previously unpublished archival material make this book an essential study on Matisse and his 1911 visit to Russia, where he discovered with fascination Russian icons, tasted the delights of the salons, and unleashed the commentaries of a hostile press, which are included here in large extracts. The following year, Matisse left for Tangier and there produced a stunning series of canvases, which the two Russian collectors acquired with enthusiasm. The correspondence published here for the first time, bears eloquent testimony to the ties of friendship and admiration that united painter and collectors. The beautiful illustrations and rare period photographs of the Shchukin and Morozov mansions and collections complement the impressions Matisse gathered in the Russian capital and demonstrate their importance for the evolution of his art

8 editions published in 2010 in English and Dutch and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the exhibition "Matisse to Malevich. Pioneers of modern art" from the Hermitage some 75 paintings have been selected from one of the world's finest collections of French painting from the early twentieth century: that of the Hermitage in St Petersburg. Matisse, Picasso and Derain receive special attention, as do Fauvists like Van Dongen and De Vlaminck and their outstanding works in this collection. Its origins go back to the Moscow collectors Ivan Morozov and above all Sergei Shchukin. Their collecting policy is the subject of an article in the catalogue. Another article focuses on the well-known Russian artists of that period, Kandinsky and Malevich. This is the first time that all these avant-garde masterpieces will be shown in the Netherlands. The exhibition and the catalogue chart the origins of Modernism as an art-historical movement, and the artists' inspiration when they initiated a revolution in art at the beginning of the last century.

Pierre Bonnard était le chef d'un groupe de peintres post-impressionnistes. Ils se nommèrent eux-mêmes les Nabis, du mot hébreux signifiant 'prophète'. Bonnard, Vuillard, Roussel, Denis, les plus illustres des Nabis, ont révolutionné l'esprit des techniques décoratives durant l'une des époques les plus riches de la peinture française. Influencés par Odilon Redon, Puvis de Chavannes, l'imagerie populaire ou les estampes japonaises, ces post-impressionnistes furent avant tout un groupe d'amis fréquentat les mêmes milieux culturels. L'individualisme croissant de leurs créations ébranla souvent l'unité du groupe. Bien que liés par une même philosophie, leurs oeuvres divergeaient nettement. Cet ouvrage permet de les comparer et de les mettre en perspective les unes avec les autres. Les oeuvres présentées dans cet ouvrage offrent une palette d'expressions merveilleusement poétiques : candide chez Bonnard, ornementale et mystérieuse chez Vuillard, doucement rêveuse chez Denis, âpre jusqu'à l'amertume chez Valloton, l'auteur nous fait partager la vie intime des artistes jusqu'à la source profonde de leurs dons créatifs.
