Pierre Bonnard

I haven't been blogging for quite sometime now. There has been so much drama going on in my life. Oh well, life still goes on.

I went to the MET yesterday and visited the exhibition on the Late Interiors of Pierre Bonnard. The exhibition focussed entirely on the late interiors. What I loved the most was the way Pierre brought in life in these paintings. Most paintings were playful and brought in joy while quite a few conveyed a deep emotional sentiment.

Although cameras were not allowed in this section, I managed to take some shots. Here are some of his work:

Work Table, 1926/1937
If you look closely, you can see a dog and a cat on top of the sofa behind the work table.
The dog looks well rested. Pretty nice life! Don't you think so?

I love the complementary colors used in this painting. Very bright and cheerful.

I wish I could be right there. Love the scenic view from the window.

The muted blue and pink works so well together. A very calm and relaxing place indeed.

Have a good weekend everyone. So long.
