Édouard Vuillard (1868 – 1940)

He studied at the Academie Julien in Paris and shared a studio with Pierre Bonnard. Both artists were inspired by Serusier’s theories derives from the works of Gauguin and became founder members of the Nabis in 1889. Vuillard was also influenced by the fashion for Japanese prints and this was reflected in his paintings of flowers and domestic interiors, executed with a keen sense of tone , colour and light. He was also a prolific designer of textiles, wallpaper and decorative features for public buildings. His paintings of cosy domestic subjects show a tremendous feeling for texture and patterning, a skill he picked up from his mother, who was a dressmaker. The bolts of brightly coloured cloth that surrounded him as a child found and echo in his own textile designs. His late paintings were more naturalistic, aided by photography, which he employed to capture the fleeting moment.
