Reine Natanson (c.1913-1914). Édouard Vuillard (French, 1868-1940). Distemper on canvas.
In 1909, Vuillard began renting a large studio at 112, boulevard Malesherbes, geographically close to Thadée Natanson who lived a block away on rue de Laborde, and who had earlier been painted by Vuillard. Here Natanson’s second wife, Reine, was painted by Vuillard as she reads at a window.
