The Green Blouse

Pierre Bonnard French

Not on view

This painting captures a scene the artist must often have observed. His longtime companion and future wife, Marthe (Maria Boursin), is seated at a table laden with dishes and a fruit bowl. The profile of an attendant or maid is visible at the left. Although Marthe was in her fifties at the time, she appears ageless she always does in Bonnard's paintings.
