Le Jarretieres Rouges, 1903-1904
Bonnard’s interest in nudes emerges towards the end of the 1890s, which coincides with the stylistic disintegration within the Nabis. Both in technique and subject matter this painting aptly summarises Bonnard’s approach to his newly adopted genre. The loose, rapidly executed technique seems to caress the form of the nude figure, while the prominence given to the red garters transforms the painting into a softly spoken erotic statement.
