Pierre Bonnard paintings in the Hôtel d'Assézat collection

The Hôtel d'Assézat in Toulouse (France) has a good collection of paintings by Pierre Bonnard. I have placed them in chronological order so that you can see the evolution of his style. Notice how the early paintings have a narrow palette where later he made played with colours and light in a constant research for different harmonies.

L’entrée d’Urbain II à Toulouse by Benjamin Constant


Benjamin Constant (10 June 1845 – 26 May 1902), was a French painter who was well known for his Oriental paintings. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Toulouse under Alexandre Cabanel. He was influenced by his travels to Morocco and Spain.

“L’entrée d’Urbain II à Toulouse” was commissioned in 1892, finished in 1900, and exhibited in Paris before being delivered to Toulouse. It was only exhibited in its current location in 1925 because some architectural work was needed to accommodate the height of the painting.
