NEWS, VIEWS, INFORMATION AND SPECIAL EVENTS IN THE ART WORLD

French painter and printmaker, Pierre Bonnard was born in 1867 and is now recognised as one of the greatest colourists of the early 20th century.

Pierre Bonnard: The Colour of Memory at Tate Modern this spring will concentrate on work he completed from 1912 until his death in 1947 – the period when colour became his primary concern. Bonnard preferred to work from memory.

Most of his works are narrative and autobiographical – interiors, nudes and flower-filled gardens, subjects that concentrate on intimate scenes of everyday life, often including his wife, Marthe de Meligny. He didn’t paint from life, preferring instead to draw his subjects (occasionally also photographying them) and make notes on the colours. ‘I have all my subjects to hand,’he said, ‘I go back and look at them. I take notes. Then I go home. And before I start painting, I reflect, I dream.’

About The Artist

Welcome to the first issue of 2019 to inspire and inform your artistic development, including all the information you will need to plan your entries to the best open competitions throughout the year in our extensive 5-page guide. We also see the start of two new series, by Ruth Buchanan on how to draw and paint animals with confidence, and Mark David Hatwood on all aspects of marketing and how to make money from your artwork. There are practical articles and demonstrations showing you how to adapt your painting techniques for coloured pencil work, with amazing results, how to paint a self-portrait as well as a stunning faded rose, both in watercolour, and how to make your watercolours more dynamic by using watercolour grounds. Our top artist contributors also share their expertise on best practice for working on the spot, how to plan a complex composition, paint your first realist still life in acrylic, use your sketchbooks to work out your ideas, how to paint successfully from your photos and which colours to mix in oils to achieve a sense of space in your landscapes. With all this and much more, there's plenty to keep you drawing and painting over the festive period. Enjoy!
