Catalogue entry from Bonnard

50 The Table 1925
La Table
Oil on canvas 102.9 x 74.3 (40 1/2 x 29 3/8)
Tate Gallery. Presented by the Courtauld Fund Trustees 1926
Dauberville 1310

The table left Bonnard's studio very shortly after it was painted, and was purchased by the Tate Gallery in 1926.

The coloured pencil drawing, fig.87 [p.152: White Table c.1925, pencil on paper; Private Collection], is reproduced in Natanson 1951 as a work of 1929, but it might well be earlier, given its close similarity with The Table.
