    Oil on canvas

    By the time Bonnard painted Citronniers au Cannet, he was widely celebrated among the avant-garde, and his paintings were sought after by prominent collectors in America and Europe. In 1926 he bought the Villa du Bosquet above Le Cannet, where he remained for the rest of his life. Bonnard's new estate commanded a magnificent view over the bay of Cannes and the mountains of the Esterel. The lush surroundings and the dazzling light that reflected off the water inspired some of the artist's most monumental landscapes, including Citronniers au Cannet. This composition depicts the grounds of the villa as seen from a higher point of elevation.

    The present work once held a prominent position in the collection of Sally Ryan, co-founder of the Garman-Ryan Collection, now on permanent display in The New Art Gallery Walsall (see fig 1). The collection is comprised of numerous works by European artists of the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries, including Epstein, Modigliani, Monet, Picasso, Turner and Degas. After Sally Ryan’s death, Lady Kathleen (Garman) Epstein, second wife of the American-born British sculptor Sir Jacob Epstein and co-founder of the Garman-Ryan collection, was responsible for selling a small portion of the estate to benefit the Garman-Ryan Collection.

    Citronniers au Cannet was sold to Sir Jacob Epstein’s nephew, Jerome Solomon. The written correspondence between Lady Epstein and Mr. Solomon is one of warmth, adoration and appreciation. In a letter dated September 10, 1974, Lady Epstein writes to Mr. Solomon: "If you had not come to my rescue I should have been left with nothing to live on. And it is also owing to your successful efforts that the rest of the paintings were released to me in my lifetime. So you see how important a part you have placed in the success of the Garman Ryan Collection. Already there have visitors and very enthusiastic ones from many countries."

Pierre BonnardPierre Bonnard was a French Post-Impressionist painter remembered for his ability to convey dazzling light with juxtapositions of vibrant color. “What I am after is the first impression—I want to show all one sees on first entering the room—what my eye takes in at first glance,” he said of his work. Born on October 3, 1867 in Fontenay-aux-Roses, France, Bonnard studied law at the Sorbonne, graduating in 1888. During this time, he was also enrolled at the École des Beaux-Arts but left to attend the Académie Julian in 1889. At this more open-minded painting academy, Bonnard met Maurice Denis, Paul Sérusier, and Édouard Vuillard, among others. Together with these artists he helped from a group known as the Nabis, who were influenced by Japanese prints and the use of flat areas of color. Early on in his career, Bonnard was better known for his prints and posters than for his paintings. Moving to the South of France in 1910, over the following decades, Bonnard receded from the forefront of the art world, mainly producing tapestry-like paintings of his wife Marthe in their home. Late works of Bonnard, such as The Terrace at Vernonnet (1939), more closely resembled a continuation of Impressionism than other avant-garde styles of the era. Because of this, at the time of his death on January 23, 1947 in Le Cannet, France, the artist’s work had been largely discounted as regressive. Today, his works are held in the collections of the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Neue Pinakothek in Munich, the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, and the Tate Gallery in London, among others.
