Pierre Bonnard (1867–1947)

Born in Paris, Bonnard was a French painter, illustrator, and lithographer who trained at the Académie Julian. He was a member of the group known as 'Les Nabis,' a post-impressionist group of artists which included Denis and Vuillard. His style developed from the influence of impressionism, Japanese prints, Gauguin, and Toulouse-Lautrec. Ignoring the movement towards abstractism, he continued to paint interiors, portraits, and landscapes in which everything is subordinated to the subtlest rendering of light and colour effects.
