1. Lucie Belin dans l’atelier (1915). Edouard Vuillard (French, 1868-1940). Pastel on paper.

    Originally, this picture was thought to show Lucy Hessel, Vuillard’s long-term muse and lover. Hessel was absent in 1915 and Lucie Belin filled the vacuum. Lucie appears to be a part of her surroundings, perhaps defined by them. She is shown at the back of the room, as though from a distance, sitting and reading; the walls, filled with pictures, result in an vibrant loose mosaic of colour, each rectangle adding more to the composition. Likewise, there is an absorbing intimisme, a characteristic of Vuillard’s interiors.
