The Holburne presents an extensive exhibition of works by Édouard Vuillard (1868-1940), including many that are rarely publicly displayed. Vuillard was one of the leading figures in French art at the end of the 19th-century. Famed for his small, subtle studies mostly of figures in interiors, his art is renowned for its modest scale, intimate subject matter and intense colouring. We celebrate the unique qualities of his early work, from the 1890s, in which he balanced an obsession with patterned fabrics and wallpaper with subtle, domestic psycho-dramas to create paintings with striking emotional intensity.
