The Mirror in the Green Room (La Glace de la Chambre Verte)
http://www.imamuseum.org/art/collecti...

Bonnard was a leading member of the Nabis, the progressive Parisian artists who often painted intimate interior scenes with flat, decorative patterns and a strong sense of mood.

Around 1900 Bonnard began painting nudes, a theme that occupied him for the rest of his career. He worked entirely from memory, freely distorting form and perspective to create novel vantage points and spatial relationships.

This canvas offers a fascinating juxtaposition between the observer's view of the scene and the image partially reflected in the mirror. Bonnard's fondness for glowing color appears in the dappled golden light filtering through the curtains on the right.
