In this densely patterned image, a hanging lamp is suspended in the left foreground against a background of floral wallpaper.
The setting, probably based on Vuillard’s Paris apartment, reflects his love of pattern and unusual vantage points. Like the other members of the innovative artists’ group called the Nabis (after the Hebrew word for prophet), Vuillard relished complex and clever surface design.
This print is one in a portfolio of 13 lithographs commissioned by the publisher and art dealer Ambroise Vollard.
