Felix Vallotton
Sasha M. Newman
Oct 1991
From Library Journal
Published to accompany a large traveling exhibition organized by Yale curator Newman, this catalog is also the best work in English on Vallotton (1865-1925), a Swiss artist active in Paris from the 1880s and a member of the Nabi group. Seven essays by various authors cover the full range of Vallotton's career, giving weight to his later paintings as well as the pre-1900 woodcuts for which he is best known. More than an exhibition catalog, this is a strong and useful survey of an undervalued artist for both special and general collections. Highly recommended.- Jack Perry Brown, Art Inst. of Chicago Lib.Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Long-awaited by the international community, this catalogue raisonné in three volumes with a wealth of color illustrations, lists over 1,700 paintings, largely unpublished. The Nude...
