This beautiful original lithographic print was created after Pierre Bonnard as an exhibition poster at Galerie Paul Pétridès in Paris, 1969. This piece exemplifies the pseudo-fauvism explored by Bonnard and his contemporaries.
Bonnard was a founding member of the Post-Impressionist group of avant-garde painters Les Nabis, and his early work was strongly influenced by the work of Paul Gauguin, and the prints of Hokusai and other Japanese artists. He was a leading figure in the transition from impressionism to modernism. He painted landscapes, urban scenes, portraits and intimate domestic scenes, where the backgrounds, colors and painting style usually took precedence over the subject.
