I had the good fortune to spend an inspirational morning surrounded by Bonnard’s shimmering and glowing canvases at the Fondation Beyeler in Basel. Here is the link http://www.fondationbeyeler.ch

Bonnard’s use of colour combined with his unusual compositions which were influenced by Japanese graphic art have had an enduring fascination for me.

And the quote for the day:

“It seemed to me that it was possible to translate light, forms and character using nothing but colour without recourse to values.”  Pierre Bonnard
