Vuillard, (Jean-) Édouard


Vuillard, (Jean-) Édouard
born Nov. 11, 1868, Cuiseaux, France
died June 21, 1940, La Baule

French painter, printmaker, and decorator.

With Pierre Bonnard he developed the Intimist style, characterized by small paintings of daily home life, such as Woman Sweeping (с 1892). He was an original member of the Nabis; his Public Gardens (1894), a series of decorative panels that use pale light and neutral colours to create a mood of restful calm, are typical of his mature work as a Nabi. He received numerous commissions to decorate public buildings, including murals in the Palais de Chaillot (1937) and in the League of Nations building in Geneva (1939), and also designed for the Ballets Russes.
