Pierre Bonnard's Self portrait (c1938-40)

Bonnard was a founder of the French art circle known as Les Nabis (‘the prophets’), who tried to revitalise painting through the use of strong fields of colour and simplified forms. He painted almost a dozen self-portraits, most of them in later life.

Learn more about this fascinating self-portrait with the Gallery’s Alexandra Gregg.

The talk will be audio described for blind and vision-impaired visitors and Auslan interpreted for deaf and hearing-impaired visitors.

Artwork of the Month is part of the Third Sundays at the Gallery program, a State Street Learning for Life initiative.
