The Painting Of Bonnard “Nude in the sun” also called “Nude with side lighting”, although correct “Model, illuminated from behind” (Model in Backlight). It is important that lighting the artist focuses. This painting is one of the first in which Bonnard departs from the restrained palette of intimate works from the early 1900’s and admits on your canvas the sun. The light literally fills the picture: he is on the curtains, on the walls, on the covers of the sofa. Sunlight caresses every inch of a naked female body strong. The model the artist was his wife Martha.
