Artists & Styles

The Swiss artist Felix Vallotton (1865-1925) was born in Lausanne, but spent much of his working life in France. Closely associated with Pierre Bonnard and Edouard Vuillard, and a fellow member of the avant-garde group Les Nabis, Vallotton has nonetheless sometimes been overshadowed by his more famous contemporaries. Although he produced some of his most important work in Paris in the 1890s, his original and innovative approach persisted throughout his career. Texts by leading authorities on the artist look at his life, work and reception. Generously illustrated throughout with the finest exemplars of the artist's paintings and prints, this book accompanies a new presentation of Vallotton's oeuvre that aims to re-evaluate his output and legacy, and includes some works never seen before. AUTHORS: Dita Amory is curator at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and author of Madame Cézanne (2014). Philippe Buttner is Keeper of the Collection at the Kunsthaus Zurich.

Katia Poletti is Director of the Vallotton Foundation. Christian Rumelin is Keeper of Prints and Drawings at the Cabinet d'arts graphiques du Musee d'art et d'histoire in Geneva.
