Jean-Edouard Vuillard (1868-1940) was a French painter best known for his unique & exquisite interior paintings, & for his association with the artist group Les Nabis, both of which blossomed in the 1890s. Vuillard's intimate interiors were inspired by the 60 years, he spent with his mother in a succession of apartments in Paris, watching her at work as a dressmaker. The son of a retired sea captain, Jean-Edouard Vuillard moved with his family to Paris at the age of 10. After winning a scholarship, he trained at the French Academy of Fine Arts, where he met Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947).   Vuillard's mother ran her dressmaking studio from home, giving her son ample opportunity to immerse himself in the colors, patterns, materials & shapes of her dress fabrics. He recorded scenes of  industrious activity among the dressmakers.
