Drawings by Bonnard

£19.99

Product description

Bonnard is known and loved as a painter of colour. One might therefore imagine that an exhibition of drawings, most of them tiny and rapidly pencilled, would show little of the quality of his art. With artists like Ingres and Degas it is clear that drawing is at the heart of their work. In the case of Bonnard this is not so obvious but it is no less true. Bonnard painted his surroundings and his paintings speak of particular times of day and effects of light. But unlike the Impressionists he painted away from his motif. Instead he relied upon a practice of constantly making drawings which combine the spontaneity of a caught moment with all the information needed for the more deliberate matter of painting: enthusiasm, passion and hard fact. Bonnard's drawings were not made for exhibition but, showing him directly and unself-consciously engaged with his subject, they embody the essence of his art.

Internally clean and bright, with moderate tanning to page edges. Wear to cover, including scuffing/foxing. Creasing to bottom left of cover/some page corners.
