Associate Curator Dita Amory presents a discussion of the radiant late interiors and still lifes of Pierre Bonnard (French, 1867 - 1947) that were on view at the Met, January 27 through April 19, 2009. Compelling metaphors for a range of sensations, the late paintings convey a disquieting effect. It is these luminous late interiors that define Bonnard's modernism and have prompted a reappraisal of his reputation in the history of twentieth-century art.
