It's been more 20 years since the Tate last held a retrospective of Pierre Bonnard's work — a true master of colour and composition.

The Colour Of Memory will focus on his work between 1912 and his death in 1947, presenting colourful landscapes and intimate little domestic scenes that capture a fleeting moment in time — maybe when somebody has just left the room, a meal has just been finished, or a stolen look at a partner.

Bonnard is often ranked alongside Henri Matisse as one of the greatest colourists of the 20th-century, effortlessly capturing the spirit of a moment through his unique handling of colour and innovative sense of composition.
