La Fenêtre (The Window)

Pierre Bonnard, 1925

In this work, Bonnard unites interior and exterior in the strong sunlight of the South of France. It was made in a rented apartment at Le Cannet, the town which the artist’s wife Marthe is seen surveying from the balcony. The sensuality and warmth of the south entranced Bonnard, but in his paintings he habitually framed the landscape with windows or doorways, as if submitting the abundance of nature to human control.
