MAA has arranged for a private guided tour of the exhibition “Bonnard's Worlds” at the Phillips Collection in Washington, DC, on Saturday, May 18 at 11:30 am.   

Bonnard's Worlds, the first major retrospective of Pierre Bonnard's work at The Phillips Collection in 20 years, explores the sensory spheres of experience that fueled the French artist's creative practice.  Bonnard's immediate surroundings were the lifeblood of his work, and this exhibition is guided by those personal spaces that found expression in this art through his recording of remembered sensations.  Governed neither by chronology nor geograph, but by measures of intimacy, the exhibition transports the visitor from the larger realms in which Bonnard lived -- the landscapes of Paris, Normandy, and the South of France -- to the most intimate interior spaces of his dwellings and his thoughts.  Bonnard's Worlds reunites some of Bonnard's most celebrated works from museums across Europe and the United States, as well as many less-exhibited works drawn from private collections
