 Image: Interior (Marie Leaning Over Her Work), c. 1892-1893  Édouard Vuillard's (1868-1940) long career spanned the fin-de-siècle and the first four decades of the 20th century. Comprising more than 230 works, this exhibition represents the full range of his subject matter, revealing both the public and private sides of this quintessentially Parisian artist. Beginning with his earliest academic studies, the exhibition continues through the innovative and experimental Nabis paintings of the 1890s for which the artist is best known; his provocative, complex interiors; and his work associated with the avant-garde theatre. It also includes Vuillard's splendid but lesser known large-scale decorations, his luminous landscapes, and the elegant portraits from the last decades of his career, as well as a substantial selection of drawings, graphics, and photographs.
