Woman in a Striped Dress, Jean Edouard Vuillard, 1895

The woman in the striped dress is Jean Edouard Vuillard. 65.7x58.7

The French symbolist artist Vuillard was a member of the Nabis group, whose orientation was close to the art of modernity and symbolism. At first, Vuillard painted only interiors, but gradually began to introduce female figures into them.

On this canvas woman in white and red striped dress It is an integral part of the interior - she and the lady in red in the background do not violate the silent being of things. Patterns on women's outfits, background drawing, ornamental decorativeness of a vase and flowers are woven into a single color space. The artist is not interested in conveying the portrait similarity of models; for him, they are just an element of a special, subtle, emotional world, where the rhythmic expressiveness of silhouettes and the harmony of matte, vibrating colors converge. This painting by Vuillard is an excellent example of the art of symbolism, full of hidden meaning and understatement.
