Sept. 26-Dec. 17

Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947) was one of the original members of Les Nabis, a French post-impressionist group of avant-garde artists who were inspired by symbolism and the spiritual aspect of painting. Largely influenced by the bold flatness of Japanese ukiyo-e styles, Bonnard became known as “the very japonard Nabi.”

Bonnard masterpieces — including paintings, sketches, prints and photographs — from collections in Japan and overseas have been brought together for this large-scale exhibition. Highlights include 30 works from the Musee d’Orsay, which are being shown in Japan for the first time.
