Frases de Pierre Bonnard
Fecha de nacimiento: 3. Octubre 1867
Fecha de muerte: 23. Enero 1947
Pierre Bonnard fue un pintor, ilustrador y litógrafo francés que dedicó su talento a la publicidad y a la producción artística.
Se le suele considerar líder del movimiento de los Nabis, grupo del que también formaron parte Paul Sérusier, Maurice Denis, Paul Ranson, Édouard Vuillard, Xavier Roussel o Félix Vallotton. Todos fueron influidos por Paul Gauguin y el japonismo. La producción tardía de Bonnard se considera precursora de la pintura abstracta, al menos en alguna de sus variantes.

„My first pictures were done by instinct, the others with more method perhaps. Instinct which nourishes method can often be superior to a method which nourishes instinct.“
quoted by his brother-in-law Claude Terrasse, in 'Introduction' of Pierre Bonnard, John Rewald; MoMA - distribution Simon & Schuster, New York, 1918
„I should have sent you news of myself long ago, for I know how much pleasure one derives from a letter during one's first days in the regiment. One needs it to be reminded that one is something more than a registered number and that in the past one's existence was different from that of beast. Anyway that is how I felt about the army. I was unable to connect my present existence with my former life as a civilian.... Here [in Paris in his studio in La Rue Pigalle] I am leading a studious and quite exemplary life... I am working on an important picture which is progressing well and which will be exhibited, I hope, at the [Salon des] 'Indépendants. In addition I am planning to do a screen which will also be shown at the exhibition. Otherwise nothing is happening. I may go with Vuillard to see a music publisher, but I do not expect any success as yet in that direction. I have abandoned chromolithography (ouf!) for the moment, but I shall take it up again whenever I feel impelled to interrupt my oil painting, in order to vary my pleasure's.“
