Some things never change…for instance the distinct way we poodles like to play. Pierre Bonnard captures it perfectly in his painting, “The Two Poodles” (1891).

Bonnard is known for his intense use of color…but what I’m interested in is his excellent choice of subject matter.

Bonnard’s retrospective, “Pierre Bonnard: Painting Arcadia,” will be showing at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco in February 2016, following it’s opening at the Musee d’Orsay in Paris and a stint in Madrid. This will be the show’s only U.S. exhibit, so you may want to plan to trot on over to the City.
