I rejoined Art Tag after nearly a two year absence. The theme is fauve intimiste. I wanted to familiarize myself with the intimistes and came upon Pierre Bonnard in my research. He had lifelong relationship with Marthe de Meligny, whom he married after living with her 30+ years. Both exceedingly private and spent much time in the privacy of their home. He painted interior scenes and used her as his primary model. He painted her as a wanton nude and an exuberant bather. For this project, transformed an old knickknack shelf into a "madison du reclus." The details of the chambres include ornate framed images that I made from moldy postcards, veneer samples and trimmings.
