Catalogue Note

‘When my friends and I wanted to further the work of the Impressionists and develop it, we sought to go beyond their naturalist impressions of colours. Art is not nature. We were stricter in terms of compositions. Colour was a means of expression of which we had to take advantage’

Pierre Bonnard speaking to Ingrid Rydbeck

(quoted in Isabelle Cahn & Guy Cocheval (eds.), Pierre Bonnard: Painting Arcadia (exhibition catalogue), 2015, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, p. 33)
