About the artist
His early talent in printmaking attracted the attention of artists Pierre Bonnard and Édouard Vuillard, leading to his inclusion in the Nabis group. Although he didn't quite fit in with the Nabis, it ushered him into a vibrant literary and bohemian circle. Through these relationships, Vallotton found a distinctive path, gaining prominence via his innovative satirical woodcuts for progressive left-wing publications.
Vallotton's journey didn't stop at printmaking. As his career matured, he shifted focus towards painting, applying his printmaking techniques to his works. His unique blend of Realism and Symbolism resulted in pieces that emanated an uncanny psychological tension. Vallotton's death occurred in Neuilly-sur-Seine, Paris, France on December 29, 1925, but his legacy persists in his compelling body of work.
