Did you know?

Pierre Bonnard once said of Redon: “All of our generation fell under his charm and received his advice.”


Later in life, Odilon Redon turned to portraiture, creating likenesses of both commissioned sitters and his close friends. This print represents a figure central to his artistic and social milieu: Pierre Bonnard was a younger artist who admired Redon’s emphasis on interior states. Redon depicted only the head and profile of his subject, sketching Bonnard with fine and delicate detail. He produced just a small number of impressions of the lithograph, accentuating its personal and intimate theme.
