Edouard Vuillard French

Not on view

Vuillard shared various apartments in Paris with his mother. After Madame Vuillard retired from her corset-making business in 1898, the artist ceased to depict her at work but showed her at leisure, reading the paper, playing with her grandchildren, receiving guests, or, as here, at a meal. Madame Vuillard remained her son's principal muse until her death in 1928.
