This exhibition is the most important ever devoted to Edouard Vuillard (1868-1940). For the first time the whole extent of the artist's career, spanning from the 1890's to the 1930's, can be analysed in depth. The 280 pieces presented - paintings, graphic works and photographs from public and private collections in many countries as well as from the artist's workshop archives - include both famous pieces and artworks never exhibited before. An important place is given to the artist's decorative painting. From the Nabi Vuillard to the portrait painter of interwar Paris, the purpose of the exhibition is to explore all the aspects of a multi-faceted artist who never ceased to celebrate the union of intelligence and sensuality.
