9780099471981: Forever Nude

On a cold winter morning in Paris in 1893, Marie, a farmer's daughter from the Midi is helped across a bustling street by a diffident young artist named Pierre Bonnard. When the two finally speak she introduces herself not as Marie, but as Marthe de Méligny, the aristocratic daughter of Italian parents.

Marthe becomes Bonnard's lover and muse for the next fifty years; before he met her there were no nudes in his work but afterwards her body, perched naked above a mirror of water or at her toilette, would dominate his art. Forever Nude is an homage, a love letter, an impassioned, intimate record of the artist - a great friend of Matisse, a great enemy of Picasso - and an extraordinary evocation of the world of both artist and model.

Review:

"What must be conveyed is the naturalness, the vivacity with which this author writes very particular, extremely personal texts... This book is a fervent homage, subtle and light" ( Le Figaro)

"As an introduction to this painter's universe, this book has it all - but this is not a biography, nor an essay about art. This is a love letter...offering a thousand places for daydreaming, or for the genius of Bonnard to take wing" ( Lire)

"An intriguingly impressionistic, lyrical little work... It is a dramatic story, and one vividly told" ( Irish Times)

Book Description:

The beautifully written story of the painter Bonnard and his relationship with his model Marthe - later his wife.
