The Galerie Berès, facing the south west wing of the Louvre which stands across the river, was founded by Huguette Berès in 1951 and is now run by Anisabelle Berès, her daughter.

Bonnard, "the very Japanese Nabi," shows with humor daily life in Paris and evokes with a poetic subtlety the intimate scenes of family life.
