A tour of our exhibition, Félix Vallotton: Painter of Disquiet, designed for wheelchair users and mobility impaired visitors.

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 us for this early morning tour as we discover paintings and prints that detail Vallotton’s extraordinary body of work: from compelling portraits, magnetic still life paintings, luminescent landscapes and bitingly satirical prints, to interior scenes which reverberate with psychological tension.

This event includes refreshments and volunteer support is provided.
