Bonnard to Vuillard: The Intimate Poetry of Everyday Life

Bonnard to Vuillard: The Intimate Poetry of Everyday Life — The Nabi Collection of Vicki and Roger Sant presents over 60 exquisite, rarely seen works by a leading group of French Post-Impressionist artists who ushered in a new form of artistic expression in the 1890s. Assuming the name “Nabis” (from the Hebrew navi, meaning “prophet”), its members shared a belief in art’s intimate connection to everyday life. Works by Pierre Bonnard, Édouard Vuillard, Maurice Denis, Félix Vallotton, and others across a range of media—including painting, sculpture, lithography, stained glass, ceramics, tapestry, and screens—reveal the various ways in which the Nabis sought to break down the artificial barriers between the fine and decorative arts.

The exhibition and its accompanying catalogue significantly enrich the understanding of the Nabis’ lasting contribution to the history of modern art.
