Pierre Bonnard : photographs and paintings by Françoise Heilbrun( Book )

8 editions published in 1988 in 3 languages and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first collection of the photographs of master Impressionist painter Pierre Bonnard, this work of scholarship documents the existing oeuvre of Bonnard's work, from delicate nature studies and landscapes in his native France and elsewhere in Euriope, to striking portraiture and intimate images of lovers, friends and family. The more than 276 photographs and illustrations, demonstrate the range and genius of Bonnard's work, and offer insights into his process as an artist. Bonnard's photographs wre the inspiration for several of his well-known works, among them the illustrations fro Parallèlemnt by Verlaine (1900) and Daphnis and Chloé by Longus (1902). The texts and critical annotations make important connections between Bonnard's photographs and his drawings and paintings
Pierre Bonnard : early and late by Elizabeth Hutton Turner( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This major presentation of the work of Pierre Bonnard follows a new line of enquiry reconciling what has previously been seen as two distinct early and creative periods: the Nabis or symbolist Bonnard and the later so-called Impressionist or colorist Bonnard. By uniting representative works from all periods of Bonnard's life, this book charts the artist's singular pathway and illustrates his highly independent artistic vision. The 130 works illustrated here, including paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, and sculpture, show that Bonnard continually experimented with alternative media and drew from a range of sources, both Eastern and Western."--Page 4 of cover
Natural histories by Jules Renard( Book )

39 editions published between 1896 and 1994 in 5 languages and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Renard mingles wonder and humor in a series of miniature portraits of subjects drawn from the natural world: dogs, cats, pigs, roses, snails, trees and birds of all sorts, humans of course, and even a humble potato. Ranging from a sentence to several pages, Renard's sketches are ... compress[ed] and descripti[ve], capturing both appearance and behavior through a choice of details that makes the familiar unfamiliar and yet surprisingly true to life."--Publisher description

Bonnard by Sarah Whitfield( Book )

13 editions published in 1998 in English and French and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947) is among the most enigmatic of the great masters of twentieth-century painting. In this book, Sarah Whitfield and John Elderfield bring a new understanding to his deeply serious, complex paintings." "Published to accompany a major retrospective exhibition at the Tate Gallery, London, and at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Bonnard features two important essays based on much fresh research. Sarah Whitfield, curator of the exhibition, discusses the legacy of the Symbolism of Bonnard's early years and the way in which his acceptance of nature's surrender to time finds expression in the grand elegiac paintings of the later period. John Elderfield, curator of the exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, writes about Bonnard's awareness of the complexities of visual perception, and how crucial an understanding of this is to fully comprehending his stature as a painter."--Jacket
Interpreting Bonnard : color and light by Nicholas Watkins( Book )

3 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pierre Bonnard was a very private painter who confined his subject matter to his wife, his homes, the surrounding countryside, and his self-portraits." "This book provides a concise review of Bonnard's life, key works, and the development of his technique, which began with early work done chiefly in tone, then led to gradual color-enrichment and, finally, to the mastery of light suffusion. Author Nicholas Watkins presents the artist not as a sentimental survivor of Impressionism, as he was often labeled, but as a highly demanding formal artist who transformed light into an emotional atmosphere enveloping the surface within which objects exist."--Jacket

Bonnard and the Nabis by A. G Kostenevich( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 of
