"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."--P. [4] of cover
Natural histories by Jules Renard( Book )

"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 and the Nabis by A. G Kostenevich( file )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 340 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

Interpreting Bonnard : color and light by Nicholas Watkins( Book )
4 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 155 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
