Interior with Pink Wallpaper II (Intérieur aux tentures roses II)

Édouard Vuillard

European Art

Édouard Vuillard’s suite of twelve color lithographs Landscapes and Interiors was published by Ambroise Vollard the same year as Pierre Bonnard’s Some Aspects of Parisian Life, on view nearby. Like Bonnard, Vuillard was profoundly influenced by the dense decorative patterns, flat color blocks, and compressed perspectives—in which near and far are described with colors of the same intensity—that characterize prints made about a hundred years earlier by Japanese artists such as Katsushika Hokusai. Vuillard also shared an interest in the similar subject matter of intimate spaces and everyday activities of strolling and socializing.
