Pierre Bonnard: Tate Modern Exhibition


10:00 on Saturday 23 Feb 2019 to 16:00 on Thursday 7 Mar 2019
Location:

The Eyal Ofer Galleries
Bankside
London
SE1 9TG

Description:

This is the first major exhibition of Pierre Bonnard's work in the UK since the much-loved show at Tate 20 years ago. It will allow new generations to discover Bonnard's unconventional use of colour, while surprising those who think they already know him.

Born 1867, Bonnard was, with Henri Matisse, one of the greatest colourists of the early 20th century. He preferred to work from memory, imaginatively capturing the spirit of a moment and expressing it through his unique handling of colour and innovative sense of composition.
The exhibition concentrates on Bonnard's work from 1912, when colour became a dominant concern, until his death in 1947. It presents landscapes and intimate domestic scenes which capture moments in time - where someone has just left the room, a meal has just finished, a moment lost in the view from the window, or a stolen look at a partner.  

Gabriel Josipovici's 1998 critically acclaimed novel Contre-Jour: A triptych after Pierre Bonnard will be reissued for this exhibition.
