Pierre Bonnard - Naked in Bathtub
in the manner of Pierre Bonnard "Naked in Bathtub" pastel on paper circa.1930, private collection Approx. 19x13in. in the manner of Pierre Bonnard was a member of the Symbolist group of painters known as Les Nabis ("prophets" or "seers"), and so subscribed to the Nabi doctrine of abandoning three-dimensional modeling in favor of flat color areas. However, although Bonnard was a member of this group, he was not interested in obscure Symbolist subject matter and was not a mystic. Instead, he was satisfied - even fascinated and delighted by - the scenes of simple daily life around him. Because of this, he has been called an "intimist."
