View Of Le Cannet - Bonnard

“View Of Le Cannet” is one of Pierre Bonnard's most spectacular works because of its size, over two metres high and wide, but also because of its history. Painted in 1930, the painting is surprising from an artist better known for his intimist settings. And it has its share of mystery... It remained unknown for more than 70 years! The painting made its first public appearance in 2008 at a Christie's auction in London, where it sold for €4.3 million, making it one of the ten most expensive paintings by Pierre Bonnard. Why did this extraordinary work remain hidden, when the painter was at the height of his fame?
