Garden Scene, by Fernand Piet (1869-1942), Oil on Canvas.

Piet, like his fellow Nabis artists Vuillard and Bonnard, simplified form and and colorby flattening them against the surface of the canvas whose intense coloration contributes to the radiance of the composition. The rim of a bright orange bonnet creates a dialogue with the vibrant pinks and reds of the foliage, and the dappled sunlight casts luminous shadows on the path of a Parisian garden whose central figures are a seated nanny and a young girl.

"After rigorous academic training at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, Piet spend a good deal of time with fellow artists Soutine, Gauguin and Modigliani at the mythical Grande Chaumiere, creating artwork and exchanging ideas on the current stylistic movements impacting the art world.
He exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Francais, the Salons d'Automne and des Independants, and received a bronze medal at the highly acclaimed Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1900 as well as the prestigious 'Palmes Academiques' (or academic wreath) selectively given to major contributors to the arts, in 1910.
He executed numerous preparatory sketches for his paintings, and regularly frequented the Parisian public gardens, bistros, brasseries as well as cabarets in Montmartre. He captured children at play, animated market scenes, and colorful street life of his beloved Paris.
