Pierre Bonnard

View this post on Instagram

A founding member of the Les Nabis group, and a leading figure in the transition from impressionism to modernism, Pierre Bonnard was born #otd in 1867.

His art emphasizes pleasures we all experience when we start to relish the small details and rhythms of daily life.

As he said, ‘Draw your pleasure, paint your pleasure, and express your pleasure strongly.’

The Meal (At Table) 1899, Pierre Bonnard (1867–1947).
