The Galerie Berès, facing the south west wing of the Louvre which stands across the river, was founded by Huguette Berès in 1951 and is now run by Anisabelle Berès, her daughter. Its twin focus has been, from Day One, on the graphic arts from the Far East and the avant-garde movements in 19th century France.

VUILLARD Edouard (1868-1940)
Edouard Vuillard was registered at the lycée Condorcet with Maurice Denis, Lugné-Poe, and Ker-Xavier Roussel who would later become his brother-in-law.
A good student, he trained for Saint-Cyr but gave it up to devote himself to art under the influence of Roussel. He attended the académie Julian where he joined most of those who would later form the Nabis group  (Maurice Denis, Pierre Bonnard, Ker-Xavier Roussel, Paul Sérusier...).
They associated themselves with the circle of La Revue Blanche, managed by the Natanson brothers.
After the Nabi period, rich in pictural innovations, Vuillard progressively asserted a more classical style of painting where gradations of colours, volumes and depth dominate. The depiction of intimate middle-class interiors and decorative panels became increasingly important in his work.
