The Bathroom, 1932
I recently found a fun and informative website written by a British black and tan Dachshund named Archie. It turns out Archie and I have similar tastes in art. We both are obsessed with French painter Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947). I thought it would be appropriate to feature Bonnard this Bastille Day, though any excuse would do.
Here are some of our favorite works:
The Red Checkered Tablecloth or The Dog's Lunch, 1910
Preparatory sketch for Le Café, 1915
Le Café, 1915
Carafe, Marthe Bonnard with her Dog, 1912-1915. (I love the evolution of this scene and I think this is the best incarnation.)
Woman with Dog, 1891. (I'm not sure if this is a Dachshund, but I'm pretending it is for the purposes of this post.)
Nude in the Bath and Small Dog, 1941-1946.
Dressing Table and Mirror, 1913. (See the Doxie and the nude reflected in the mirror. This might be my favorite.)
