About the Artist
French painter and printmaker Pierre Bonnard (1867–1947) was a founding member of the Post-Impressionist group of avant-garde painters Les Nabis, a group of young artists committed to creating work of symbolic and spiritual nature, and as such is considered one of the defining figures of modernism in the transitional period between Impressionism and abstraction. Bonnard preferred to paint from memory, using drawings and photographs as a reference, and his works were characterized by a dreamlike quality. He was known for his intense use of color and complex compositions of intimate domestic scenes, which often included his wife and muse Marthe de Meligny.
This scarf features a detail from Pierre Bonnard's Baigneurs à la fin du jour (Bathers at the End of the Day). The gauzy fabric is swathed in purple and red sunset hues.
