Félix Vallotton (1865-1925) was a Swiss/French painter and printmaker. After attaining a degree in classical studies in 1882, he moved to Paris to study art. His earliest paintings, chiefly portraits, are firmly rooted in the academic tradition. By 1892 he was affiliated with “Les Nabis”, a group of young artists that included, among others, Pierre Bonnard. During the 1890’s, Vallotton was closely allied with the avant-garde and his paintings reflected the style of hs woodcuts, with flat areas of color, hard edges, and simplificiation of detail. He died on the day after his 60th birthday, following cancer surgery in Paris in 1925. His brother Paul was an art dealer and he founded the Galerie Paul Vallotton in Lausanne, France in 1922. The gallery continued operation for many years under the control of his descendants.
