was a French painter of the Classicist
period. He graduated from the Academy of Arts in Paris. Together with other artists (Maurice Denis, Pierre Bonnard, Paul Serusier, Ker-Xavier Roussel and Félix Vallotton), he was a member of the Nabis, which in Hebrew means prophet. Their great role model and inspiration was the French painter Paul Gauguin
. Because Villard lived his whole life with his mother
, a seamstress, many of his works bear the theme of housework. His paintings, such as Two Seamstresses at Work,
is complemented by richly decorated wallpaper and women’s dresses. Vuillard painted not only paintings, but also posters - La Patiserie
. In 1899, the Nabis unfortunately exhibited for the last time. Vuillard then painted portraits and still lifes for wealthier clientele in his studio. He also undertook depicting intimate scenes, for which his artist friends posed.
