'Pierre Bonnard, Painting Arcadia' at the Musée d'Orsay

Bonnard advocated a basically decorative esthetic, fuelled by sharp, humorous observations drawn from his immediate surroundings. This blockbuster retrospective at the musée d'Orsay, custodian of Bonnard's work, is representative of the full arc of his career through all his creative periods.

From the small picture to the large format, from the portrait to the still life, from the intimate scene to the pastoral subject, from the urban landscape to the ancient setting, over 30 of d'Orsay's own paintings and 60 borrowed pieces from museums and private collections, reveal the full spectrum of an instinctive and supremely sensitive artist.
