Things seen - Pierre Bonnard

Yesterday I received a parcel with the catalogue of the Bonnard show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The exhibition concentrates on the late interiors and still lifes. These paintings function on so many levels and contain very unexpected elements which often remain hidden on a first viewing. The picture within a picture is also a common feature. I find the way they are executed extremely engaging. Everything is subsumed into a new soft painterly reality and given unity. A few of the paintings to be found in the book...

  1. I saw this show three weeks ago when I was in NY for my exhibit. It was really! good. I can't stop thinking about it.
