In "Bonnard’s Worlds," the Kimbell Art Museum will present its first exhibition dedicated to the works of French painter Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947), inspired by its 2018 acquisition of the artist’s Landscape at Le Cannet (1928). The exhibition will explore the sensory realms of experience that fueled the painter’s creative practice - from the most public spaces to the most private.

Comprising a careful selection of approximately 70 of Bonnard’s finest works, created over the course of his career, "Bonnard’s Worlds" will reunite some of the artist’s most celebrated works from museums in Europe and the United States, as well as many unfamiliar to the public from worldwide private collections.

Governed neither by chronology nor geography, but by measures of intimacy, the exhibition will transport the visitor from the larger realms in which Bonnard lived, the landscapes of Paris, Normandy or the South of France, to the most private interior spaces of his dwellings and of his thoughts.

The exhibition is organized by the Kimbell Art Museum and The Phillips Collection. George T.M. Shackelford, deputy director, Kimbell Art Museum, will serve as the exhibition’s lead curator, in collaboration with Elsa Smithgall, chief curator, The Phillips Collection.
