ART: Vuillard and His Muses at The Jewish Museum

EDOUARD VUILLARD: ‘SELF-PORTRAIT WITH WAROQUY,’ 1889

Earlier this month, a poignant exhibit, “Édouard Vuillard: A Painter and His Muses, 1890-1940,” opened at The Jewish Museum and it will be on view through Sept. 23, 2012. Vuillard began his impressive career as a painter and member of the Nabi group of avant-garde artists in Paris in the 1890s. The current exhibit features more than 50 paintings, prints, photos and documents detailing the role many of Vuillard’s muses (including his mother and sisters), illustrious patrons and art dealers played in his life.

Many of Vuillard’s paintings on view at The Jewish Museum represent public and private collections, some pieces never shown publicly in the U.S. until now. His importance as an impassioned artist remained secure from the turn of the 20th century well into the start of World War II. Vuillard died in 1940.
