The Bonnard exhibition was so much better than our disappointing visit to the Maeght Foundation. It is a jewel of a gallery with paintings by Gaugin. Bonnard. Picasso and Chagall. It is reasonably priced and like the previous reviewer, we visited the Sarbacane pizza/bistro and enjoyed a delightful lunch on their sunny terrace.

A smallish museum where you always start your visit from the top floor and work downwards. As always, the overall impression is to some extent dictated by the contents. This, our second visit, was to see the Nude pictures and influences from Gaugin to Bonard, Chagall et al, . Content was variable, with some notable pieces. Light lunch afterwards at Le Sarbacane, 50 metrers away, was excellent and cheap. €7 entry for this exhibition

This is a beautifully constructed extension to an old (late 19th C) building, whose interior has been remodelled to show paintings. We visited an exhibition titled 'the nude from Gauguin to Bonnard' which includes none of Bonnard's most famous paintings of the nude (usually of his wife). Musee Bonnard highlights the problem of recently established museums dedicated to a local artist who has become world famous (Bonnard lived here for many years) - all the best paintings are, by now, in the world's leading galleries or private collections; the Matisse Museum at Nice has a similar problem. This means the permanent collection is small and often of second rate works. You will learn more about Bonnard in the Musee d'Orsay in Paris or the Chicago Art Institute, for example, but the museum at Le Cannet is just about worth the entry fee and bus fare as a good example of modern museum design and building.

There is not much to see, mostly black and white drawings... The nicest think is the building itself, it is very well renovated combining an old building with a new one.
