Pierre Bonnard

French painter
What attracted me was less art itself than the artist’s life and all that it meant for me: the idea of creativity and freedom of expression and action. I had been attracted to painting and drawing for a long time, but it was not an irresistible passion; what I wanted, at all costs, was to escape the monotony of life.More Pierre Bonnard quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
