Abstract

Bonnard and his friends in the 'Nabis' (Prophets) group were inspired by the bold colours of Gaugin's paintings and this influence was predominant in Bonnard's lithographic work. "These pictures are about more than just the passage of time or the consolation of memory. They are about the acceptance that everything in nature surrenders to time...These works crystallise what has always been Bonnard's primary mood, that of elegy. He has often been described as a painter of pleasure, but he is not a painter of pleasure. He is a painter of the effervescence of pleasure and the disappearance of pleasure. His celebration of life is one side of a coin, the other side of which is always present - a lament for transience."
