The artist Pierre Bonnard was hardly effected by the nabists religious influences. However he shared their interest for the japanese wood carving.
Bonnard was often very much expressly decorative in a playful way: Character, rhytm and form were very important for Pierre Bonnard.
This information below is mostly derived from summary written by Joseph -Emile Muller.
An opponent movement started in the end of the 1880ths in direct contradiction to academical painting and the impressionists movement in which many young painters were involved and they called themselves: the nabists which means profets in the hebreic language. In the nabist group of painters were among others Voillard, Pierre Bonnard, Maurice Denis, Paul Serusier.
The differances within this group of painters were very big.
The only common grounds were the oppostion against the naturalistic ambitions by the impressionists.
Around 1890 in nearly all of the studios this reaction against impressionism developed in which spirituality became more important than only the pure registration of impressions.
Within litterature in these times a paralell tendency were developed: the symbolism.
A definition of the sybolistic painting from the contemporary art critic Albert Aurier 1891 were the words:grounded on fundamental ideas, conclusive, subjective and decorative at the same time and Gaugain is probably the most mentionend representative of symbolism within painting.
Description of the drawing for sale/characteristics of Bonnard
Bonnard chose to paint the same motives as the impressionists, motives from the countryside but Bonnard did not paint realism and light like the impressionists.
The trees are off-centered cut off in a spatial dislocation.
Bonnard plays on instability not on light as the impressionist would depict from the middle of the countryside.
Rather than structuring on a clearly defined basis, Pierre Bonnard delights in mingling proximity with distance. Bonnard prefers filling all space with areas of charcoal draws which, because of his desire to shut out all sense of depth and to fill in all openings, seem even to push the sky away.
In contradiction with the hierarchical vision accustomed to the use of a privileged subject Pierre Bonnard is levelling out all the different areas of the painting: the trees the ground, the sky: this levelling out is to be found throughout Bonnards work.
Faces appears in the middle of this drawing and in other paintings by Bonnard his wife and model occasionally appears.
