Accompanies a major international retrospective at the Tate Gallery and Museum of Modern Art, New York with loans from numerous public and private collections. The book includes introductory essays based on new research by Sarah Whitfield and John Elderfield. Sarah Whitfield deals with the legacy of the symbolism of Bonnard's early years and the way in which the painter's acceptance that everything in nature surrenders to time finds expression in the grand elegaic paintings of the later years. John Elderfield writes about Bonnard's awareness of the complexities of visual perception, and how he enrolls the temporarily extended processes of looking and seeing to create for the beholder a narrative of attention which mobilizes his paintings in their viewing in radical and surprising ways. Each work is illustrated in colour, in many cases, with related drawings, including those from his diaries and sketch books, some of which are published here for the first time.
