Bonnard and Escapism

Artist and independent scholar Julian Bell offers his view of the late interiors and related still-life imagery of Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947) in the context of French modernism. This is the second of three videos recorded on February 8, 2009, in conjunction with the special exhibition “Pierre Bonnard: The Late Interiors,” on view at the Met January 27 through April 19, 2009.
