From Impressionism to Bonnard and Picasso, the Nahmad Collection
July 7 - November 3, 2019
This summer, the Nahmad Collection is pleased to unveil a selection of exceptional works from the late 19th century through the first half of the 20th century at the Bonnard Museum.
This exhibition, presented on three levels of the museum, is organized around the great names of Modern Art— from the masters of Pre-Impressionism and Impressionism (Boudin, Monet, Renoir, Laurencin, Sisley, Degas, Zandomeneghi), to Picasso, Bonnard Nabis, Toulouse-Lautrec, the Fauves (Marquet, Dufy), the cubists (Braque, Gris), and the School of Paris (Modigliani, Kisling, Pascin).
Forty works, specially selected for the Bonnard Museum, showcase the fascinating connections between artistic currents of the different periods, while highlighting the contribution of each of these artists to art history.
Rarely exhibited together, these works allow us to establish connections and distinctions between Bonnard and his peers, telling a story that was written between 1870 and 1950, the story of one of the most profound and important periods in art history.
