Fraternity and Femininity

Family Ties in the Art of Édouard Vuillard and the Nabis

Vuillard and the Nabi brotherhood – which included Pierre Bonnard, Maurice Denis and Vuillard’s brother-in-law, Ker-Xavier Roussel – often portrayed their mothers, sisters and grandmothers in relation to larger themes of family and femininity in French art and society.

Join us for an afternoon of lively debate, with papers by the curator of Maman, Dr Francesca Berry (University of Birmingham), Professor Belinda Thomson (University of Edinburgh), Dr Rachel Sloan (Courtauld Institute of Art, London) and Mathias Chivot (Archives Vuillard, Paris,) followed by a round-table discussion.
