1. La Fenêtre (1925). Pierre Bonnard (French, 1867‑1947). Oil on canvas. Tate.

    Bonnard unites interior and exterior in the strong sunlight of the South of France. It was made in a rented apartment at Le Cannet, the town which the artist’s wife Marthe surveys from the balcony. The sensuality and warmth of the south entranced Bonnard, but in his paintings he habitually framed the landscape with windows or doorways, as if submitting the abundance of nature to human control. On the table is the novel Marie by Peter Nansen, for which Bonnard drew the illustrations; it was published by the Revue Blanche in 1898.
