Édouard Vuillard (French, 1868–1940) was a painter and printmaker associated with the Nabis, a group of Post-Impressionist artists, and best known for his domestic scenes. He trained at the Académie Julian in 1886 under Tony Robert-Fleury, and at the École des Beaux-Arts under Jean-Léon Gérôme, before joining the Nabis in 1889. His sketchbooks and studies show an early interest in the interiors of 17th-century Dutch painters and those of Chardin.
