Did you know?

Unlike most artists, Bonnard did not ask his models to sit still; instead, he requested that they "live" in front of him.

Bonnard's paintings of his wife Marthe, often depicted in intimate settings such as dressing or bathing, and filled with scintillating light and color, are among his great works.
