Artist Pierre Bonnard (1867 – 1947) distanced himself from the world, which attributed to his stylistic diversity and keen introspection. Bonnard loved the trivia of everyday life, turning it into an art form. His interiors are joyously bright, streaming with light and color. Bonnard was a member of the Nabis (meaning “prophets”), a group of artists who utilized color and composition to create a specific mood. Remarkably diverse, Bonnard also illustrated books and designed furniture, textiles, stained glass, lithographs and stage sets.
This collotype print was produced in an unknown edition size.
This fine art print is produced using the collotype process, a meticulous printing process that produces extraordinarily detailed reproductions with unparalleled color depth and range. Although collotype printing was replaced by the offset lithography press for commercial printing, it is still used by some fine art printers because of its unique ability to capture microscopic detail and tonal gradations.
