Les nabis or The prophets, was a group of post impressionist artists who belonged to the Académie Julian. Following the artistic approach of Paul Gaugin, they were eager to express “the synthesis of nature in esthetic metaphors and personal symbols”. Whatever this means, the paintings produced by the group are a particular mixture between the technique of the impressionism and the colors of fauvism.

Despite the simplicity of others, Bonnard’s compositions are usually complex. In the work In summer, the artist portraits his family in a farm in Normandy. His wife and children play in a path surrounded by trees and, in the background, we can look at a valley with crops and some buildings. Here, Bonnard uses bright colors, but he mixes the tones, making the different planes of the work confusing. The main character is, without any doubt, his wife Marthe, who ironically is emphasized by her black dress.

  1. What makes the Logitech AnyAngle stand out among other cases is its unique stand with an integrated hidden hinge that holds your iPad at any angle within a 50-degree range, and firmly keeps that angle in place without tipping or sliding.

  2. Consider this confirmation that an Off-White x Air Jordan 1 is indeed coming: the shoes were worn by Off-White creator Virgil Abloh on Monday night at the Met Gala in New York City.
