App DescriptionJean-Ă‰douard Vuillard (11 November 1868 â€“ 21 June 1940) was a French painter and printmaker associated with the Nabis.
Jean-Ă‰douard Vuillard, the son of a retired captain, spent his youth at Cuiseaux (SaĂ´ne-et-Loire); in 1878 his family moved to Paris in modest circumstances. After his father's death in 1884, Vuillard received a scholarship to continue his education. In the LycĂ©e Condorcet Vuillard met Ker Xavier Roussel (also a future painter and Vuillard's future brother in law), Maurice Denis, musician Pierre Hermant, writer Pierre VĂ©ber, and AurĂ©lien LugnĂ©-PoĂ«.
In 1885, Vuillard left the LycĂ©e Condorcet. On the advice of his closest friend, Roussel, he refused a military career and joined Roussel at the studio of painter DiogĂ¨ne Maillart. There, Roussel and Vuillard received the rudiments of artistic training. In 1887, after three unsuccessful attempts, Vuillard passed the entrance examination for the Ă‰cole des Beaux-Arts. Vuillard kept a private journal from 1888â€“1905 and later from 1907 to 1940.
