Edouard Vuillard, one of the great post-impressionists, is especially loved for his small easel paintings, but the fabulous large-scale decorative schemes that he created for wealthy Parisian homes are a relatively unknown aspect of his oeuvre. In this lavishly illustrated study, Gloria Groom examines fifty of these daring and important paintings and recreates and reevaluates their original settings. She provides valuable new information about Vuillard's career, a fresh perspective on his thinking about art, a discussion of "decoration" as a new painting style, and an entertaining social history of fin-de-siecle Paris.
