Two oil paintings on cardboard in the collection of Gothenburg Museum of Art, Nude and Model in Armchair by Pierre Bonnard, have been investigated and compared. Both paintings were made around 1903-1905 during a significant time in Bonnard’s career, when his palette became brighter – moving towards a more colouristic expression. The paintings have both been on permanent display since their acquisition, but Nude shows a higher degree of discolouration and degradation while Model in Armchair appears more stable. In this presentation we will discuss the results from this investigation of the technique and condition. Both palettes and two types of varnish were identified, and an overpainted date was also discovered. Provenance and art historical context will be presented with new information regarding both paintings’ history.
Föreläsningen hålls på engelska och svenska.
