“A highly original account of the artist’s work, Pierre Bonnard
Beyond Vision is far-reaching in its import and consequence for the
understanding and reconceptualization of European modernist
painting of the early twentieth century.”—Carol Armstrong, author
of Cézanne’s Gravity
“Using close visual analysis and a careful reading of the artist’s writings, Lucy Whelan offers a welcome new account of Pierre Bonnard’s art. His late paintings in particular emerge from this book in a new light: complex, sophisticated, deeply human.”—Marnin Young, author of Realism in the Age of Impressionism: Painting and the Politics of Time
