Meet Snapshot: Edouard Vuillard

Edouard Vuillard (1868–1940)
Painter and printmaker Edouard Vuillard, best known for his intimate interiors, started taking pictures with a Kodak around 1895. He had the film developed professionally, but often did the printing himself or entrusted it to his mother. Almost 2,000 snapshots—only a small percentage of which he made as studies for paintings—remain in the family archive, a testament to the artist’s lifelong fascination with the medium.
