Pierre Bonnard: The Colour of Memory

Tate Modern, 23rd January to 6th May

After Pierre Bonnard’s death in 1947, one critic said that in his work, “impressionism becomes insipid and falls into decline.” This exhibition aims to recast our picture of the French painter. The show reveals neither an impressionist nor a post-impressionist Les Nabis painter, but instead a wholly modern artist, conjuring from memory in vivid colours and experimental perspectives elusive moments of everyday life. Beyond the sheer pleasure of colour, this first major UK show in 20 years is a chance to explore the psychological complexity of his paintings.

Two Temple Place, London, 26th January to 22nd April

John Ruskin, the Victorian artist, educator and critic, believed that social progress could only be achieved by making cultural treasures available to all. A man of passionate convictions, he founded St George’s Museum in Sheffield in 1875, filling it with watercolours, drawings, prints, plaster casts, and manuscripts.

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect’s January/February double issue: A host of writers and personalities explain what they think will be the most important thing we need to learn in the new year. From Justin Welby arguing for new emphasis on learning to forgive and Lord Neuberger on the importance of a free judiciary to Hannah Fry on AI and Cathy Newman on what happens next for #MeToo—Prospect has it all. Elsewhere in the issue: Fintan O’Toole looks at Brexit from an Irish perspective, Wendell Steavenson dishes the dirt on what really happens to the waste you want to recycle, Frank Close questions why—half a century after our last visit—we’ve not been back to the Moon. Also, Michael Blastland argues that we’re ignoring the upsides of having an alcoholic drink and Clive James explores the life of Philip Larkin.
