Pierre Bonnard Exhibition | Tate Modern London

Pierre Bonnard Exhibition | Tate Modern London

February 20, 2019

This is the first major exhibition of Pierre Bonnard's work in the UK since the much-loved show at Tate 20 years ago. It will allow new generations to discover Bonnard’s unconventional use of colour, while surprising those who think they already know him.



Born 1867, Bonnard was, with Henri Matisse one of the greatest colourists of the early 20th century. He preferred to work from memory, imaginatively capturing the spirit of a moment and expressing it through his unique handling of colour and innovative sense of composition.

The exhibition concentrates on Bonnard’s work from 1912, when colour became a dominant concern, until his death in 1947. It presents landscapes and intimate domestic scenes which capture moments in time – where someone has just left the room, a meal has just finished, a moment lost in the view from the window, or a stolen look at a partner.

Organised by Tate Modern in collaboration with Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Copenhagen and Kunstforum Wien.

Exhibition Dates: Until 6th May 2019

Exhibition Hours: 10:00 AM – 4:30 PM

Venue: Tate Modern, Bankside, London, SE1 9TG
