Vuillard, Edouard (1868-1940) – 1891c. Child Wearing a Red Scarf (National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC)
Vuillard studied art from 1886 to 1888 at the Academie Julian and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In 1889 he joined a group of art students that included Maurice Denis, Pierre Bonnard, Paul Serusier, Ker-Xavier Roussel, and Felix Vallotton. They called themselves the Nabis (Hebrew for “Prophets”), and they drew their inspiration from the Synthetist paintings of Paul Gauguin’s Pont-Aven period. Like Gauguin, the Nabis advocated a symbolic, rather than a naturalistic, approach to color, and they usually applied their paint in ways that emphasized the flat surface of the canvas. Their admiration of Japanese woodcuts, which were then in vogue in Europe, inspired them to use simplified shapes and strong contours. Many of his works deal with domestic and dressmaking scenes set in his mother’s bourgeois home. In the paintings and prints of his Nabi period, he often created flattened space by filling his compositions with the contrasting rich patterns of wallpaper and women’s dresses. Because of their focus on intimate interior scenes, both Vuillard and Bonnard were also called Intimists.
In addition to painting, Vuillard, like most of the other Nabis, was involved in book illustration, poster design, and designs for the theatre. In 1893 Vuillard helped found Aurelien Lugne-Poe’s Theatre de l’Oeuvre, which produced Symbolist plays. Vuillard designed stage sets and illustrated programs. In 1899 the Nabis exhibited together for the last time. That year Vuillard began to paint in a more naturalistic style. He also executed two series of masterful lithographs that reveal his great debt to Japanese woodcuts. Vuillard continued to receive numerous commissions to paint portraits and decorative works for private patrons as well as for public buildings. His public paintings included the decorations in the foyer of the Theatre des Champs-Elysees (1913) and murals in the Palais de Chaillot (1937) and in the League of Nations in Geneva (1939).
Vuillard retained an Intimist sensibility for his entire career; even when painting portraits and landscapes, he instilled his compositions with a sense of quiet domesticity. In the early 20th century, when European art was influenced by the development of avant-garde styles such as Cubism and Futurism, many critics and artists viewed Vuillard as conservative. Paintings from his Nabi period received the most popular and critical approval, with critics often dismissing his later work. However, in the late 20th century, historians and critics began to devote more attention to Vuillard’s achievements as a decorative painter and designer.
Denis, Maurice (1870-1943) – 1919 Around a Child with Dog (Private Collection)
French painter, designer, lithographer, illustrator, and writer on art theory. Early in his career he was a Symbolist and a member of the Nabis. He was the chief theorist of the group and one of his articles, ‘Definition of Neo-Traditionalism’ (1890), contains a pronouncement that has become famous as an anticipation of the underlying principle of much modern—especially abstract—art: ‘Remember that a picture—before being a war horse or a nude woman or an anecdote—is essentially a flat surface covered with colors assembled in a certain order.’ Denis’s early work, strongly influenced by Gauguin, did indeed place great emphasis on flat patterning, but he did not intend to encourage non-representational art, for he was also very much concerned with subject matter; he was a devout Catholic and wanted to bring about a revival of religious painting.
Many of his easel paintings have religious subjects, and in 1899 he carried out his first large-scale religious commission—a mural in the Chapelle de la Sainte-Croix at Vesinet. Numerous others followed, and in 1919 he founded the Ateliers d’Art Sacre with Georges Desvallieres (1861–1950) to provide church decorations of various kinds, including mosaics and stained glass. Typically Denis’s style in his religious work was tender and mild, with pale colors and relaxed lines. He also did a good deal of secular decoration, but his most famous work is probably Homage to Cezanne (1900, Mus. d’Orsay, Paris) showing Denis himself and a number of Cezanne’s other admirers, including Bonnard, Redon, Serusier, and Vuillard, gathered round a still-life by the master. His best paintings were done early in his career; after about 1900 they became more classical in style (influenced by visits to Italy) and increasingly bland. From 1914 Denis lived in a 17th-century building in Saint-Germain-en-Laye; it has been attractively converted into the Musee du Prieure, housing a fine collection of works by him and his associates.
