The Dessert, 1940
I imagine the Met's exhibition of Bonnard's drawings, paintings, and watercolors from 1923-1947 filled with Doxie works I have never seen before like The Dessert (above). It would be thrilling to see them in person, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen so I have been searching for new discoveries online.
I have yet to find a comprehensive review of the show, but Twitterer and recovering art director, David Ross, Tweets, "Late Bonnard at the Met equal to a walk on a sunny spring day. Quite a treat." Sounds lovely.
If anyone goes and finds more dogs let me know. I collected many of them here. Read more about Bonnard's late interiors at ArtDaily. Information at the Met's website. The exhibit runs until April 19, 2009.
P.S. Doesn't The Dessert remind you of this David Douglas Duncan photo of Picasso and Lump, the little brown Doxie at his master's elbow...
