« Pierre Bonnard, l’invité des Collettes »


From 11 June to 30 September 2024

Many visitors came to Les Collettes when Renoir stayed there. But not all were welcomed. The painter Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947) received a warm welcome!

To recall these visits, which were more silent than talkative if we are to believe the witnesses, and which both enjoyed, the Musée Renoir is presenting an exhibition of works, books and documents from its collections and those of the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Nice and the Musée Bonnard in Le Cannet, which have generously agreed to lend some of their treasures, in the large studio for the duration of the summer.

Admiration and encouragement were the foundations of this artistic friendship, which began in Paris at the end of the 19th century and continued on the Côte d'Azur, where both artists were captivated by the light and landscapes.
