At the Tate Modern

This is a still taken from a short film of Bonnard, shown at the end of the gallery space - worth watching as it show Bonnard with his family and of course his women and children and the sausage dog. I loved this final shot of him with his friends alongside him - what an era!

The exhibition itself was a treat, despite reading some negative reviews suggesting his work was bit frou frou. He really did paint as he saw, so yes much of his anatomy work is inaccurate, and perspectives literally go out of the window, but through all this you get a deeper sense of a man trying to get the essence of a scene as a whole, and not worrying about outside influences and criticism.
