Portrait of Louis Bonnier

Portrait of Louis Bonnier

Price: Price on request

Offered by Studio 2000 Kunsthandel




Louis Bernard Bonnier (1856-1946) was a French Art Nouveau architect known for his work as an urban planner for the city of Paris. He loosened the restrictions on the appearance of buildings in Paris, which resulted in the blossoming of Art Nouveau buildings. He designed many significant buildings himself (private villas, public housing and railway buildings), including the studio of Van Rysselberghe, rue Laugier in Paris.

Literature: Ronald Feltkamp, Théo van Rysselberghe 1862-1926, Brussels 2003, no. 1903-011, p. 88 (ill.): ‘Het Portret van Louis Bonnier, de architect, toont ook duidelijk wat de kunstenaar kon bereiken: een ontspannen man in zijn interieur voor zijn schilderijen – waaronder werken van Van Rysselberghe – en een doek dat licht uitstraalt ondanks het zwarte pak.’; B. Marey, L’Architecture d’aujourd’hui, Paris 1968.

 

Exposition: Will be included in the exposition ‘L’Architecte, portraits... et clichés’, Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine, Palais de Chaillot, 21 April – 4 September 2017, Paris.
