Organized and co-produced by Artemisia Group in Italy and the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, this major retrospective of the work of Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947) will receive its exclusive North American showing at the MNBAQ. Bonnard, a French painter, engraver and poster artist as well as a founding member of the Nabis avant-garde movement, is widely known for the originality of his brilliant compositions and his unusual handling of the paint.

The exhibition surveys the work of the painter from the perspective of one of his principal postulates: “The object is not to paint life, but to make painting come alive.” His untiring exploration of his immediate surroundings – indoor scenes, female nudes, gardens and landscapes in Normandy and the Côte d’Azur – and his extraordinary feel for chromatic harmonies and light, show that all his life Bonnard worked to transform reality.

This is the very first international exhibition to be magnificently showcased in the temporary exhibition galleries.
