Arts Initiative News Edouard Vuillard: A Painter and His Muses, 1890-1940
May 4 - Sept. 23

The Jewish Museum
1109 Fifth Ave at 92nd Street
This exhibition offers a fresh view of the French artist Edouard Vuillard's career, from the vanguard 1890s to the urbane domesticity of the lesser-known late portraits. The presentation focuses on the inspiration provided by friends and patrons whose support became inseparable from the artist's achievement. Featuring some fifty key artworks in various media, the exhibition extends pioneering past projects of The Jewish Museum, New York, on the significance of collectors and patrons for the development of modern art.

Full price: $12
Students: Free with valid student CUID

And on May 17, check out the special event Ooh La La! La French Salon Soirée, where you can experience the artistic social scene of early 20th century Paris with acrobatics, live music by Les Chauds Lapins, and more. Tickets online here.
