Artist Edouard Vuillard painted alongside his mother and sister, both of whom were dressmakers. How did this exposure to fabric and fashion impact Vuillard’s art? Join fashion historian Catherine Amoroso Leslie of Kent State University (OH) and CMA chief curator Heather Lemonedes Brown as they discuss the styles of dress popular in late 19th-century Paris and how Vuillard’s bold use of pattern reflects the fashions of the time. This program is organized in tandem with the CMA exhibition Private Lives: Home and Family in the Art of the Nabis, Paris, 1889–1900.
