Format: Hardcover
This book is gorgeous. It is full of large reproductions of Bonnard's paintings, as well as personal photographs of the artist at work, relaxing in his home, and with friends and family. The sections of the book are categorized by the paintings' subject matter - the street, the garden, the dining room, the bathroom, etc. It's very interesting to see such an abundance of everyday scenery and domestic settings reproduced in so many different unique ways. The colors are just phenomenal, and the book's reproductions are of such high-quality that it is very easy to get lost in the beauty of Bonnard's technique - you could spend all day with this book and not even realize it! The essays within are well-written and interesting, detailing not only Bonnard's life and artistic style, but also the culture of the era. I especially enjoyed Michiko Kono's piece on Paris during the Belle Époque. It's also the most affordable comprehensive Bonnard publication I could find. A great purchase!

I haven't read the text yet but i can say that Evelyn Bensch's book is nicely sized with great reproductions, also some nice photographs of Bonnard.

I have a number of art books on Pierre Bonnard since he is one of my all time favorites. I almost returned this one, however, after receiving it. In looking through it, I realized that I have other books with the same images. Upon a careful comparison of the images I quickly discovered that the quality of the images in this book are far superior to the rivals. The photos are large and the detail and brilliance of color are very notable. Such high quality reproductions make Bonnard's work all the more exciting to browse through. I rarely read an art book in it's entirety so I can't comment on the narrative content. But this is a keeper.

Ater seeing this book in several stores, and balking at the retail price, a friend suggested I try Amazon. I saved over twenty dollars and got what I wanted in very quick time.

I bought this book hoping that it would be a good resource of several of Pierre Bonnard's paintings and it did not disappoint. I am an artist, a painter, and I am in the midst of changing the way I used color and wanted to study the work of Pierre Bonnard. The book is hefty both in size and information - there is nothing else like it out there. The color images were large and BEAUTIFUL. Although I questioned, at the time of purchase, the cost of the book, I haven't given it even a whisper of a thought since the moment I first opened the book. If anything, I would pay, again, to also have a digital version of the same book, so I could see the images on my computer screen while painting in my studio. If I had that, I still would not want to be without the book, though, as I have taken it with me around my home and opened it, with great wonder, and enjoyed many moments of quiet reflection. For me, it is a better book than any "how to" book on painting. It was nice, too, that it arrived perfectly packaged and wrapped. I love my Perre Bonnard book.
