A tour of our exhibition, Felix Vallotton: Painter of Disquiet, in British Sign Language (BSL).

This exhibition reveals the vision of Félix Vallotton (1865–1925), a masterful painter and printmaker who captured the emotional undercurrents of Paris at the turn of the last century.

By the end of the 19th century, Paris was the unrivalled capital of the Western art world. Impressionism had transformed the visual arts, and Post-Impressionism was flourishing in its wake. Into this dynamic world arrived the 16-year-old Swiss artist, Félix Vallotton. He became closely involved with a group of artists known as Les Nabis, which included Pierre Bonnard and Édouard Vuillard, adopting their decorative painterly language and sharing their interest in journalistic illustration and Japanese ukiyo-e prints.

Join deaf guide Janet Alexander to discover paintings and prints detailing Vallotton’s extraordinary body of work – from compelling portraits, magnetic still-lifes, luminescent landscapes and bitingly satirical prints, to interior scenes which reverberate with psychological tension.
