Quantcast
Poetry Selections read by Richard Howard in conjunction with "Pierre Bonnard: The Late Interiors"

The exhibition Pierre Bonnard: The Late Interiors presents the radiant late interiors and still lifes of Pierre Bonnard (French, 1867-1947). Compelling metaphors for a range of sensations, the late paintings have a disquieting effect. It is these luminous late interiors that define Bonnard's modernism, and that have prompted a reappraisal of his reputation in the history of twentieth-century art.

In conjunction with the exhibition, poet and Columbia University professor Richard Howard presents three original poems related to the works of Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947).

Introduced by curator Dita Amory, associate curator, Lehman Collection, The Metropolitan Museum of Art
