Felix Vallotton (1865 - 1925) was a prolific Swiss painter, woodblock artist and print maker. He was born in Lausanne but in 1900 he married and became a French citizen. His work metamorphosed into various styles over his lifetime as you can see from my selections on today's salon and he was an important influence on the graphic styles of artists like Aubrey Beardsley and Edvard Munch. During the 1890's, Vallotton, Edouard Vuillard and Pierre Bonnard, among others, were closely affiliated with Les Nabis (Nabi means Prophet in Hebrew and Arabic), a group of post-impressionist painters and avant-garde artists.
I am especially fond of his landscapes as well as his portraiture and starkly appealing woodcuts.
