Double Lecture: Edouard Vuillard: Exploring the Limits of Intimism; Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec's Femmes de Maison: The "Back" Story

Transcript

Dr. Belinda Thomson, independent art historian and Honorary Fellow at the University of Edinburgh, considers the works by Edouard Vuillard in the Dallas Museum of Art's collections and examines to what extent the effectiveness of these works depends upon Vuillard's relationship with each subject.

Dr. Richard Thomson, Watson Gordon Professor of Fine Art, University of Edinburgh, looks widely at Lautrec's images of figures seen from behind to compare his work with contemporary artists such as Edgar Degas and, in a larger context, with parallels in French theater and psychology.
