A New Museum on the French Riviera Dedicated to Painter Pierre Bonnard

Bonnard Museum, FranceVisitors to France's Côte d’Azur this summer won’t want to miss this new attraction. Opening June 25, 2011, Le Musée Bonnard is the first space of its kind devoted entirely to painter Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947). Like Cézanne and Picasso, Bonnard was drawn to the south of France for artistic inspiration. He spent the last 25 years of his life in Le Cannet, just outside Cannes, drawn to the dazzling light and landscapes.

Now visitors will be able to marvel at the canvases he painted while living in Le Cannet, showcased at Hotel Saint-Vianney, an early 20th century townhouse spanning four floors. The first exhibition is titled "Bonnard and Le Cannet, in a Mediterranean Light," and will run until September 25. Check out 40 paintings and a selection of sketches, including the artist’s best known works such as Studio with Mimosa, The Sunlit Terrace and Almond Tree in Bloom.
