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 from January 27 through April 19, 2009. Compelling metaphors for a range of sensations, the late paintings have a disquieting effect. It is these luminous late interiors that define Bonnard's modernism, and that have prompted a reappraisal of his contribution to the history of twentieth-century art.
