Something To Aspire To

This is one of my favorite works of art. It's a (5 color, I think) lithograph by Pierre Bonnard called La Petite Blanchisseuse. It's right up my alley, I love small slices of life and all things French. I think it's very charming.

Bonnard is consider a minor impressionist for the most part, usually overlooked in favor of the heavy hitters. While they are very pretty, I'm not crazy about his paintings; however, I love his illustrations and lithography.
