Edouard Vuillard

From Library Journal
Based on the author's dissertation of the same title (Univ. of Texas at Austin, 1989), this splendid volume deserves the attention of art students and scholars alike. Groom's depth of understanding and appreciation of Vuillard's unique contribution to the decorative arts of the late 19th and early 20th centuries is clearly evident in the authoritative, well-documented text, which thoroughly analyzes Vuillard's major interior commissions from 1892 through 1913. The more than 300 high-quality illustrations elucidate Groom's analyses. Because so few of the artist's works remain in situ, reproduced photographs showing the original installations of some works are of particular interest. Extensive scholarly notes and a selective (but thorough) bibliography conclude the work. Highly recommended for all art collections.-...

Book Review
A quiet man who lived with his beloved mother, the painter Édouard Vuillard applied his inventive talents to re-imagining bourgeois interiors as shifting planes of color and pattern. Admirers of his sensuous interior world will be bowled over by this sumptuous volume with its vivid narrative and 463 exquisite color reproductions. In Édouard Vuillard, Guy Cogeval discusses the artist's life and work with a passionate involvement that is rare in contemporary art writing. He describes how Vuillard's early work as a set designer apparently led him to stage manage family members, placing them in tense or confrontational tableaux that he memorialized in paint. Vuillard was an enthusiastic amateur photographer who favored the new handheld Kodak camera. An entire chapter is dedicated to the artist's charmingly artless...

Book Description
The art of Édouard Vuillard (1868-1940) spans two centuries: a leading protagonist of Post-Impressionism, Vuillard also took part in the renewal of the decorative arts after 1900.
This catalogue raisonné of the paintings and pastels of Édouard Vuillard provides an extraordinary opportunity to look again more carefully and above all, comprehensively. Hundreds of photographs taken by Vuillard himself, together with an unprecedented collection of preparatory drawings and sketches, focus more closely on the artist's creative process than has any previous study. These three voumes present a compelling re-examination of Vuillard's work and recommends itself to experts and art lovers alike.

From Library Journal
Accompanying an exhibition at The Art Institute of Chicago and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, this attractive catalog is the first study to focus on the decorative painting of French artists Pierre Bonnard, Edouard Vuillard, Maurice Denis, and Ker Xavier Roussel, members of the Nabis in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Curator Groom chronicles the formal development of each artist's style as well as the involvement of patrons who commissioned murals and screens for their homes. In his essay, scholar Nicholas Watkins demonstrates how the four artists applied the aesthetic principles of the mural to all types of painting, thus subverting the academic hierarchy of the fine and decorative arts. Drawing parallels with William Morris's Arts and Crafts movement and acknowledging the influences of both ...

Book Description
Best known for his intimate scenes of domestic life, Edouard Vuillard (1868– 1940) was one of the great Post-Impressionist artists. Yet—in contrast to contemporaries such as Bonnard, Matisse, and Gauguin—relatively little has been published about him. This book covers all of Vuillard's work and explores his association with a number of important stylistic groups, such as the Nabis and Symbolists. The plentiful illustrations are sure to appeal to all fans of Post-Impressionist painting.

From Library Journal
By the 1890s, Parisians were inundated with printed matter catering to both collectors and those with more popular taste. Many factors contributed to this paper fallout, some technological, some social. Frustrated young artists sought a broader audience outside the rigid Salon system, Montmartre had become commercialized, innovations in printmaking made buying original art affordable, short-lived but vital literary journals were open to experimentation, and conventions of all kinds were in flux. Publishers of books, posters, sheet music, and artist's portfolios all had a hand in bringing prints of all kinds directly to the public. Thanks to the efforts of Virginia and Ira Jackson, who began collecting in the 1960s, and the National Gallery of Art, which recently mounted an exhibition of their prints,...
