Edouard Vuillard

(1868- 1940)

 



 

 

b Cuiseaux, Saone-et-Loire, 11 Nov 1868; d La Baule, nr Saint-Nazaire, 21 June 1940.

French painter, draughtsman and printmaker.He was brought up in Paris in modest circumstances, and his home life was closely involved with his mother’s and elder sister’s dressmaking work. He attended the Lycée Condorcet where his contemporaries included the musician Pierre Hermant and the writer Pierre Véber, as well as Maurice Denis. His closest friend was Ker-Xavier Roussel, and, on leaving school in 1885, Roussel encouraged Vuillard to join him at the studio of the painter Diogene Maillart (1840–1926), where they received the rudiments of artistic training. Vuillard began to frequent the Louvre and soon determined on an artistic career, breaking the family tradition of a career in the army.
