VMFA Acquires a Large Selection of Bonnard

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts has managed to acquire seven paintings from the estate of Paul Mellon by the artist Pierre Bonnard, the French post-impressionist painter (1867-1947). This may be the single largest acquisition of Bonnard work to date. Bonnard is considered by many to be the second greatest French painter of the 20th century.
