Artist of the Day- Pierre Bonnard (click on image to see more)

A contemporary of Picasso but a very different artist. In Francoise Gilot’s book, Life With Picasso she relates a comment he made about Bonnard…accusing him of mixing a new color and then dashing around to his various paintings on display to add the new color to his paintings. Bonnard loved color and used it brilliantly!

Isn't it interesting how the figures are blended into the landscape! Often the same color as the background.
