Short Desription

One of the main founders of the Nabi movement, with Bonnard, Ranson and his brother-in-law K.-X. Roussel, Edouard Vuillard slowly developed a very personal style that ignored the avant-garde, even though he had been a herald of it. Between the Primitivism of the Pont-Aven school, and the examples of Gauguin and Fauvism, and even Abstraction, he experimented with a new language of painting and found his intimist style through the most ordinary, banal subjects, which were part of his personal life. He was the painter of domestic intimacy, the warmth of the home, of silent and secret interiors, and his mother, whom he lived with, was his main model. He was closely involved in the adventure of avant-garde theater, through his work with Lugne-Poe and the Theatre de l''Oeuvre, and worked intensely with the Revue Blanche, which had a major influence on the cultural life of the essential turn-of-the-century period. The Revue Blanche opened the doors to the world of Proust to him when he became a well known portrait painter. To better understand this discreet yet essential painter, Jean-Jacques Leveque has chosen to approach his life and work through a series of sequences that examine themes, look closely at the meaning behind his simplest subjects, and sketch a progressive portrait of Vuillard in his plenitude and sumptuous independence.
