A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The illustrious career of Edouard Vuillard (1868-1940) spanned the fin de siecle and the first four decades of the 20th century. During that time, the French painter, printmaker and photographer created a large number of extraordinary works. This study of Vuillard's art presents some 100 works that should reveal the full range of his renowned artistic abilities. In a series of illustrated essays, the authors explore Vuillard's complex and diverse career, which began with his academic training in Paris in the late 1880s. By the early 1890s, Vuillard was painting the innovative and sensual Nabi paintings for which he is best known, characterised by complex patterns and vibrant colours. Vuillard was also beginning to paint provocative interiors and works associated with the avant-garde theatre. The volume concludes with an examination of Vuillard's sumptuous large-scale decorations, luminous landscapes and elegant portraits from the last decades of his career as well as a substantial selection of his pastels and prints, in addition to his photographs.

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 snapshots of family and friends. In his later years, Vuillard utilized a more down-to-earth painting style in portraits of the rich and famous. While these paintings are often dismissed as conservative, Cogeval points out Vuillard's use of subtle details to comment on some of his sitters. Four other essayists treat themes ranging from "Vuillard and Ambiguity" to the effect of his annual summer vacations on his treatment of landscape, light and composition. This exceptional book accompanies an exhibition at the National Gallery of Art, in Washington, D.C., from Jan. 19 to April 20, 2004, which travels to Montreal, Paris, and London. --Cathy Curtis
