This small book about Edouard Vuillard, 1868-1940, was originally published in French and this translation by Charles Lynn Clark appeared in 1989, one in a series of Masters in Art volumes. In addition to the essay and illustrations, the book contains a Short Bibliography, List of Illustrations and an illustrated Chronology. The illustration on the front cover is a detail from "Under the Trees", c. 1892. There are 60 illustrations including 34 in colour.

In the second half of the book, Makarius provides information about the artist's friends and his circle, including Thadée and Alexandre Natanson, Misia Natanson, The Revue Blanche, The Nabis, Aurélien Lugné-Poe, Proust, Mallarmé and Jos and Lucie Hessels, who are discussed in the text.

Vuillard, who never married and had no children, was one of the greatest painters of children. Many of his works show his niece, Annette, "Ker-Xavier Roussel and his Daughter Annette", 1903, as well as individuals, "Portrait of Claude Bernheim", 1906, and children in general, "Public Gardens cycle", 1894, and "Child on a Carpet", 1901. With the exception of children, the artist only painted women, his mother, female friends and relations and Misia Natanson, the wife of the art critic, Thadée Natanson, and the artist's muse, "Misia and Thadée Natanson", c. 1897, "Misia in Villeneuve-sur-Yonne", 1897, and "Misia Playing the Piano, Cipa Listening", c. 1898.

The artist's grandfather and an uncle were fabric designers, whilst his mother, with whom he lived until her death in 1928, was a dressmaker. Little wonder then that the designs of wallpaper and carpets take on such importance in Vuillard's work, "The Studio", 1893, The Roussel Family, c.
