Femme Etendant du Linge, 1892
Pierre Bonnard was a French painter, illustrator and printmaker, known especially for the stylised decorative qualities of his paintings and his bold use of colour. A founding member of the Post-Impressionist group of avant-garde painters Les Nabis, his early work was strongly influenced by the work of Paul Gauguin, as well as the prints of Hokusai and other Japanese artists. Bonnard was a leading figure in the transition from Impressionism to Modernism. He painted landscapes, urban scenes, portraits and intimate domestic scenes, where the backgrounds, colours and painting style usually took precedence over the subject.
