Arts Everyday Living: Through a Child’s Eyes–An Invitation to Lunch, Including a Favorite Cat

Pierre Bonnard, Lunch of the Little Ones, before 1923, oil on canvas, Museum of Fine Arts of Nancy, France


French master Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947) is known for his utilization of bright and rich colors.  However, Lunch of the Little Ones is more subdued in its palette, creating a mood of warmth and intimacy, where two children concentrate on their meal while watched by an attentive pet.
