EDOUARD VUILLARD (Yale)

EDOUARD VUILLARD (1868-1940)

The illustrious career of Edouard Vuillard (1868-1940) spanned the fin de siecle and the first four decades of the 20th century. During that time, the French painter, printmaker and photographer created a large number of extraordinary works. This study of Vuillard's art presents some 100 works that should reveal the full range of his renowned artistic abilities.

In a series of illustrated essays, the authors explore Vuillard's complex and diverse career, which began with his academic training in Paris in the late 1880s. By the early 1890s, Vuillard was painting the innovative and sensual Nabi paintings for which he is best known, characterised by complex patterns and vibrant colours. Vuillard was also beginning to paint provocative interiors and works associated with the avant-garde theatre.

The volume concludes with an examination of Vuillard's sumptuous large-scale decorations, luminous landscapes and elegant portraits from the last decades of his career as well as a substantial selection of his pastels and prints, in addition to his photographs.
