Пьер Боннар родился 3 октября 1867 г. Фонтенэ-о-Роз, возле Парижа.

Он получил хорошее образование, но не стал юристом, как того хотели его родители, а начал учиться живописи. Он посещал частную художественную мастерскую — академию Жюлиана, где проходил курсы рисования карандашом.

В 1888 г. Боннар проходил обучение в Школе изящных искусств, где была образована группа «Наби» (от еврейского nebiim (пророки), объединявшая молодых художников, искавших новые горизонты в искусстве.

Боннар является создателем и станковых картин, и больших декоративных панно. Его излюбленные темы — изображение природы, обнаженной женской натуры; есть у него и работы, посвященные уличной жизни Парижа.

Русский коллекционер И. А. Морозов не только покупал картины Боннара, но и заказал ему декоративные панно для украшения своего особняка.

Картины Боннара — средство выражения его видения, его переживания мира. Он часто обращается к одним и тем же мотивам, просто они в разные моменты жизни воспринимались художником по-разному.

Пьера Боннара называют одним из самых тонких мастеров и величайших колористов своего времени.
