Édouard Vuillard | Post-Impressionist painter

Born in 1868 in Cuiseaux, a sleepy commune in the Saône-et-Loire region of Bourgogne in eastern France, it was assumed that Jean-Édouard Vuillard would follow in his father’s footsteps and join the military.
But when he was 10 years old his family moved to Paris, where his eyes were opened to the arts and academia.
Awarded a scholarship to the prestigious Lycée Condorcet, Vuillard met Ker-Xavier Roussel and Maurice Denis🎨, with whom he would become lifelong friends.
He would eventually co-found the artists’ group Les Nabis🎨the brotherhood — together with these two artists and others including Paul Sérusier🎨 and Pierre Bonnard🎨. | © Christie's
