Edouard Vuillard French

Not on view

The painting in the background of this work shows the daughter and grandson of collector David David-Weill at his country house in Mareil-le-Guyon. Supposedly Vuillard was working on the painting in his studio when David-Weill stopped by with a pheasant from a hunting expedition. Vuillard placed it before the unfinished canvas in progress and began to paint the present picture.
