Painted Pets: Dogs and Cats in the Works of Pierre Bonnard

Wednesday, August 18, 2021, 6:00 p.m.

About The Event

Wednesday, August 18, 6:00 p.m. (EDT)

Easily identified by colorful and richly patterned scenes of everyday life, the work of painter Pierre Bonnard often showcases domesticated animals as part of the family unit.  

Join historian Kathleen Kete of Trinity College (CT) and curator Mary Weaver Chapin of the Portland Art Museum as they discuss how animals arose as an important subject for Bonnard and other artists of his time and the popularity of pets in late 19th-century France.  

This program is organized in tandem with the CMA exhibition Private Lives: Home and Family in the Art of the Nabis, Paris, 1889–1900
