Bonnard, Vuillard, Roussel and Denis were the most distinguished of the Nabis, a Post-Impressionist artistic group that formed in the late 19th century. However, an increasing individualism in their art often threatened the groups unity, and their work started to diverge. This publication lets readers compare and put into perspective the artists within this fascinating group. Magnifying everyday scenes and landscapes in harmonious compositions, the paintings of the Nabis will appeal to art students and art lovers, but also to a wider audience.

This book is an enjoyable survey of a group of artists working at the turn of the 20th century in France who went off in various highly individual and creative artistic directions. I enjoyed learning more about these less well known painters who nevertheless have significantly influenced modern art.
