ArtSpeaks / Eric Fischl / The Colors of Darkness: Bonnard’s Struggle Towards Light

Thursday, January 25 / 1PM

For acclaimed artist Eric Fischl, Pierre Bonnard’s black and white photographs reveal a profoundly uncomfortable man. With that as backdrop, Bonnard’s paintings of breathtaking color reveal a true battle between the darkness of his soul and his will toward light and release through beauty. Fischl speaks of Bonnard’s paintings in terms of his existential struggle between those polarities.

This talk is offered in relation to the Museum’s current special exhibition Artists in Motion: Impressionist and Modern Masterpieces from the Pearlman Collection, as well as the Museum’s work by Bonnard, The Beach at St. Tropez.
