Félix Vallotton - Painter of Disquite - Royal Academy of Arts

August 19, 2019

Arriving in Paris at the dawn of the Belle Epoque, a young Swiss artist began to capture frenetic life on the city’s streets, as well as moments of private drama for the liberal magazine, La Revue Blanche.

The work of Félix Vallotton caught the eye of Pierre Bonnard and Edouard Vuillard, and with them he joined a stylistic revolution (a group known as the Nabis) which took inspiration from the decorative, Post-Impressionist style of Paul Gauguin and popular Japanese woodblock prints.

Through more than 80 paintings and exquisite prints, this exhibition reveals Vallotton’s extraordinary body of work, including compelling portraits, dreamlike landscapes and satirical prints distilled into pure blocks of black and white.

A key highlight is his celebrated series of shadowy interior scenes, Les intimités. Painted in striking colour combinations, each laced with unease, these show how Vallotton’s legacy echoed into the 20th century – from the paintings of Edward Hopper to the films of Alfred Hitchcock.

Exhibition Dates: Until 29th September 2019

Exhibition Hours: Open Daily - 10am to 6pm (Friday 10am to 10pm)

Venue: The Sackler Wing of Galleries, Burlington House, Royal Academy of Arts
