Abstract:

"Felix Vallotton (1865-1925) was a keen observer of his era. His ironic and socio-critical themes distinguished him from his colleagues. He neither shunned caricatures nor maintained idyllic bourgeois appearances. His art was indiscrete and occasionally permeated by black humor and biting sarcasm. These aspects of his production have made this significant symbolist an internationally renowned avant-garde artist of early Modernism."--Jacket.
