Vuillard: The Poetry of Everyday Life

This exhibition focuses on the first 10 to 15 years of Edouard Vuillard's mature career, exploring the French artist's emotionally charged interior scenes.

Beautiful decoration and ornate surfaces; the pathos of the intimate interior; implied dramas and suppressed or unstated emotions: these are all themes that arise from the work of Edouard Vuillard (1868-1940).

The French artist was one of the founder members of the Nabis (the name derived from the Hebrew for prophet).The group, influenced by Gauguin and Degas, concentrated on pattern and distortion to emphasise psychological meanings beyond appearances in ordinary domestic subjects.

The exhibition includes prints and works on paper, as well as oil paintings, many rarely seen from major private collections.
