Sunlight at Vernon

BONNARD, Pierre (1867 - 1947)

Sunlight at Vernon

Media: oil on canvas

Size: 47.5 x 56.2 cm

Acquired: 1963; Bequest; Margaret Davies

Accession Number: NMW A 2164

Collection: The Davies Sisters Collection

This painting of around 1920 depicts the artist's garden, viewed from his house at Vernonnet in the Seine valley. The woman at lower right may be his wife Marthe. An earlier version of this view (Courtauld Institute Galleries, London), painted in around 1910, has a more sombre palette. In his later years Bonnard was fascinated by the relationship between interiors and gardens. Margaret Davies purchased this work in 1960.
