really liked it
Recommended for: those interested in French art, Decorative art, the arts and crafts movement, and the Nabis

I saw the Bonnard, Vuillard, Denis and Roussel exhibit at the Art Institute in Chicago and a book will never do justice to the scale of some of these great works of decorative painting. Many of the massive wall and ceiling panels are reproduced in this volume and it is one of the few books to offer some of these neglected gems of the Nabis movement and offers an interesting look at the history of the art and the struggle of decorative artists to be viewed as "real artists"
