Private Lives: Home and Family in the Art of the Nabis, Paris, 1889–1900
Although this screen was issued in an edition of 110, only about 20 copies survive today.
This charming scene of a nanny and her three charges extends across four panels meant to be mounted as a folding screen. Pierre Bonnard emulated the solidly colored flat forms of Japanese color woodcut prints, which he collected. He featured the screen in his first solo exhibition at Paris's prestigious Galeries Durand-Ruel in 1896.
