General Description

Pierre Bonnard experts are not immune to the difficult legibility of this lithograph. Two prominent scholars identified the image as a portrait of a solitary man before Francis Bouvet, author of the catalogue raisonné of Bonnard's prints, pointed out that the man is not alone. A woman's face appears amidst the elaborate markings of her hairstyle and collar.
