Edouard Vuillard (French, 1868 - 1940)
Vuillard was born near Lyon, but the family moved to Paris in 1878. His father died when he was fifteen and thereafter his mother, who ran a small corset and dress-making business from home, became the dominant influence in his life. Many of Vuillard's paintings of the turn of the century are small in scale and depict apparently mundane interiors or record everyday episodes in domestic, middle-class life. These were subjects few other artists thought worthy of attention. His paintings of this type are usually referred to as 'intimiste'.
