New Acquisition & Special Display: Pierre Bonnard, Landscape in Provence



Art Museum Gallery 4


Pierre Bonnard, Landscape in Provence, 1932

We are delighted to unveil for the first time Pierre Bonnard’s painting Landscape in Provence (1932), which the museum acquired in 2020.
Bonnard (1867–1947) was a French painter active from the late 19th through the mid-20th century. Bonnard’s style changed several times during his long career of nearly 60 years, but especially his works featuring a vivid palette and highly abstract approach have been described as “adventures of the optic nerves” (in Bonnard’s own words) and as “paintings among paintings.” Henri Matisse, one of the 20th century’s greatest painters, spoke prophetically of the innovative nature of Bonnard’s work, saying “Yes! I certify that Pierre Bonnard is a great painter, for today and assuredly for the future.”
In this room, we invite you first and foremost to savor the charms of Landscape in Provence to your heart’s content. We also hope that the juxtaposition of Landscape in Provence and landscape paintings by Japanese artists will offer an opportunity to appreciate Japanese modern and contemporary art from a new perspective.
