Édouard Vuillard

Vuillard, Édouard (ādwärˈ vüēyärˈ) [key], 1868–1940, French painter and lithographer; a member of the Nabis. He is known for his scenes of Montmartre and especially for domestic interiors that evoke the quiet intimacy of home life. Such paintings as Mother and Sister of the Artist (1893; Mus. of Modern Art, New York City) have a brooding tension that was supplanted by works in a lighter, more decorative vein after 1900.
