Bonnard and the Nabis

£25.00

Product description

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 often threatened the group's unity and although tied together by a common philosophy their work clearly diverged. This publication lets us compare and put into perspective the artists within this fascinating group. The works presented in this collection offer a palette of extraordinary poetic expressions: candid in Bonnard, ornamental and mysterious in Vuillard, gently dream-like in Denis, grim and almost in Vallotton, the author Albert Kostenevitch shares with us the lives of these artists to the very source of their creative gifts.

Parkstone Press, 2005. Hardcover. 8vo. Book Condition: As new. Dust Jacket Condition: as new. 207pp. Binding tight and square. Text clean and bright. Free from inscriptions or annotations. This book has almost certainly never been read (which is a strange way to advertise a book) but it deserves to be. This book would make a great gift.
