There are fewer than two weeks left to see “Snapshot: Painters and Photography: Bonnard to Vuillard” at The Phillips Collection in Washington.
The exhibition spotlights six artists – Pierre Bonnard, Edouard Vuillard, Maurice Denis, Henri Evenepoel, Henri Riviere and George Hendrik Breitner – and examines how their use of a new, hand-held Kodak camera, informed their work. Even more interesting: The exhibitions shows how their painting informed the pictures they took. It’s the kind of exhibition that has you bumping into other gallery-goers as you walk between photograph and painting, painting and photograph.
Exhibition curator Elizabeth Easton was the guest on Episode Seventeen of The Modern Art Notes Podcast. She tells great stories about Vuillard and his seemingly omnipresent mother, affairs between artists and their dealer’s wife (suggestions of which were captured by both camera and, er, canvas) and more. It’s a rollicking good show!
