A retrospective of works by French artist Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947), shows 60 paintings on loan from international museums and private collections. The exhibition demonstrates the artist’s splendid and intense use of colour with small brushmarks. The paintings depict scenes of bathers, the artist’s garden, everyday occurrences and the hustle and bustle of Paris.
