French, 1868-1940. Édouard Vuillard was a French painter, decorative artist and printmaker. In 1889, he joined a small group of artists known as the Nabis, which included Maurice Denis, Pierre Bonnard, and Paul Sérusier. The Nabis practiced making paintings which assembled areas of pure color, and interior scenes, influenced by Japanese prints, where the subjects were blended into colors and patterns. Their technique was flat and decorative which differentiated them from other artists groups of the time. Vuillard focused mainly on women in domestic interiors, which would serve as his primary subject throughout the rest of his life. Today, his works are found in the collections of the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and the Tate Gallery in London, among others.
