Jean-Edouard Vuillard was born in France in 1868 and kicked the bucket in 1940. He was an acclaimed painter and printmaker whose work was embellishing and expressive. Generally depicting interiors, roads, gardens, and figures, it was set apart by fragile execution and delicate humor. In 1884 his dad’s passing was an impetus that drove Vuillard to seek after craftsmanship. He got a grant to the Lycee Condorcet, a Parisian artistry school. After being there for one year, he left, refusing a military profession, and joining his cherished companion Roussel. Together they apprenticed at Diogene Maillart’s painting studio. Finally, in 1887 after three ineffective endeavors, at age 19, he was acknowledged into the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. A couple of years after the fact, Vuillard joined the Nabis, a gathering of painters inspired by the renowned Gauguin. He showed with them at the Gallery of Le Barc deBoutteville and later imparted a studio to Nabis companions. Around 1898 Vuillard started traveling; he visited numerous spots, including Venice, Florence, London, Milan, Spain, Brittany, and Normandy. It was in 1940, at 72 years old, when he passed on.
