Bonnard’s Worlds

Art Matters Lecture with George Shackelford

George Shackelford, Ph.D.
Chief Curator, Kimbell Art Museum

Over the course of his fifty-year career, Pierre Bonnard painted the spaces of his personal experience again and again. In complex compositions employing luminous color and sensitive brushwork, Bonnard explored the realms of his visual and sensory experience–from landscape to garden to terrace to house, looking along a path, through an open window, down at a tabletop or a bathtub, or into a mirror. George Shackelford will explore these worlds across time and place, through images drawn from the exhibition he organized for the Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth, and The Phillips Collection, Washington. D.C.

Generous support for Art Matters is provided by the SBMA Women’s Board.
