The Very Singular Felix Vallotton (1865-1925)

Thursday 2nd November '23 in the Reading Room at 7pm

The ‘very singular Vallotton’, as he was known, was one of the most distinctive and successful artists working in Paris in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Closely associated with Vuillard, Bonnard, Serusier and Maurice Denis, a group of painters known collectively as the Nabis (Prophets) during the 1890’s, he is now best known for his satirical woodcuts and the extraordinary variety of his paintings, from enigmatic genre narratives, magnetic still-lifes and portraits, to unsettling nudes and radiant landscapes. Please join me as I reveal how Vallotton responded to the influence of the Nabis, Ingres, Degas, Manet and others, producing many unforgettable works relevant to his times.
